Course Description

This day is a follow-up to the successful SNOMED CT and data quality training held in 2016.

During this year's event, we aim to look at the latest national position on SNOMED CT and how those in the thick of it are already preparing and planning. We will take a crystal ball to the changes, challenges and chances that implementation might create.

A full programme is still being developed, but we are pleased to be able confirm the following content at this current time:

  • an update from Denise Downs, Lead for Implementation and Education Engagement within the NHS Digital UK Terminology Centre
  • representation from NHS Digital on an overview of the role of the Dictionary of Medicines + Devices in regards to SNOMED CT
  • a look at the potential perils and pitfalls of implementation and how might these be addressed
  • the system supplier perspective
  • challenges to specifications writing in SNOMED CT
  • Q&A session for the expert panel — with questions taken from your submissions prior to the event

Delegate places are available at a cost of £85.00 per person. 
Please note that because this is a training day, there is no charge for VAT.

It will be held at the prestigious Donington Collections Museum in the grounds of Donington Park, in South Derbyshire. Please see our venue webpage for further location details.

Donington Park has excellent transport connections and is located very centrally within the UK. The venue is minutes from M1 Junction 24 and East Midlands Airport, close to the East Midlands Parkway train station and within a short drive from Derby, Nottingham and Leicester.

In addition to this event, delegates will be able to view the world class Donington Collection of F1 and military vehicles during lunch.
