Document Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine - Clinical Terms (SNOMED CT)

Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine - Clinical Terms (SNOMED CT) is an international clinical terminology that provides the vocabulary for IT systems to support the direct management of the health and care of an individual.
SNOMED CT also enables the representation of clinically relevant information consistently and reliably in a way that can be processed by IT systems.
SNOMED CT is due to be adopted by all NHS services by 01/04/2020.
All the relevant information on this process as well as training and educational guides can be found on our website.
