NHS England FHIR Implementation Guide (deprecated)

Important Announcement regarding this Implementation Guide
  • As of 04/10/2023, this implementation guide has been deprecated and all development on the legacy NHS England FHIR Implementation Guide assets has ceased.
  • Therefore, vendors looking to start new implementations or looking to update existing implementations should use the new NHS England Implementation Guide. Vendors continuing to implement legacy NHS England FHIR Implementation Guide based solutions do so at their own risk and on the understanding that no maintenance or support will be available.


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 conformance with the UK Core.

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