NHS Digital FHIR Implementation Guide

This guidance is under active development by NHS Digital and content may be added or updated on a regular basis.


In order to promote consistency and make it easier for implementers to locate suitable profiles, extensions, value sets, etc, for their projects, a naming strategy will be adopted for UK Core defined FHIR assets or FHIR assets derived from the UK Core. All UK Core derived implementation guides and FHIR assets MUST follow these rules to claim conformace with the UK Core.

For detailed definitions of concepts discussed within this guidance document, refer to the appropriate published version of the FHIR standard.
