Published: May 2023

Dear colleague,

Shift to use of UK extension IDs for all VMP concepts in both dm+d and SNOMED CT UK Drug Extension

The changes for the shift to use UK extension IDs for all VMP concepts in both dm+d and SNOMED CT UK Drug Extension are now being made and are available in TRUD. The roll out plan of batches and list of concepts affected by these changes are available here. Please always refer to this webpage for the latest information on the changes taking place. Further information about the above changes and the others planned for later in 2023 is available at the UK Medicines Terminology Futures pages. If you have any queries relating to any of the changes, please contact the delivery team at nhsdigital.ukmeds@nhs.net 

VMP ‘<Drug Form>’ coded attribute in dm+d – your thoughts and views are needed please

The Pharmacy Terminology team continue to seek feedback from dm+d users to understand if and how you use the VMP ‘<Drug_Form>’ coded attribute within the VMP concept class. We are undertaking a piece of discovery work as part of UK Medicines Terminology Futures. Please help by responding to this very short survey. The survey should only take a few minutes to complete and your feedback is invaluable to us so we would be very grateful if you are able to respond. Please be assured that any personal details you submit will be treated in strict confidence.

Thank you in advance and if you have any questions about completing this survey, please contact: nhsdigital.ukmeds@nhs.net. For further information about this change, please visit: Updating the NHS dm+d ‘<DRUG_FORM>’ coded attribute within the Virtual Medicinal Product concept class - NHS Digital
