The webinar was chaired by Slade Carter, Deputy National Lead, Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Team, PHE and updates on the implementation dates of SNOMED CT, the clinical terminology which will replace Read codes.

Following feedback from end users to not deploy close to financial year-end, SNOMED CT will now be implemented in phases across primary care from April 2018. In place for April will be dual coding, the ability to add new codes needed nationally that are in SNOMED CT only and the ability to undertake specifications provided in SNOMED CT, for example QOF for 18/19 is only expressed in SNOMED.

The first phase of deployment will start with approximately 20 pilot sites across all principal supplier systems. Following successful first of type, suppliers will inform practices of their deployment dates and available training.
