Change to VTM codes in dm+d data will be live from 13 February

Published: February 2023

Dear colleague,

From Monday 13 February, the majority of dm+d VTM content will use the SNOMED IDs for the ‘contains only’ Medicinal Product concepts from the SNOMED CT International data. Details about this change can be seen within the terminology web pages. A list of the changes that have been made can be seen within the supporting resources.

Some VTMs in dm+d still need their IDs to be updated and these will be worked through over the coming months as a second phase.

VTMs with a UK Extension ID where no equivalent “contains only” Medicinal Product concept exists in the SNOMED International data will remain unchanged in dm+d by this work.

If you have any queries about the changes that are taking place please contact nhsdigital.ukmeds@nhs.net

Kind regards
