Subset Description :
This refset provides a link between Inactive SNOMED CT concepts that are still in use in dm+d and their Active replacement in the SNOMED CT UK drug Extension release. The NHS dictionary of medicines and devices (dm+d) uses SNOMED CT codes from both the SNOMED CT International Release (concepts in the SNOMED CT core module) and the SNOMED CT UK Drug Extension release (concepts in the SNOMED CT United Kingdom drug extension module). International concepts may be in any of the following dm+d concept classes: - VTM - VMP - Ingredient - Form - Route - Unit of Measure If an International concept is Inactivated by SNOMED International and that concept ID is the current concept ID on a Valid dm+d concept, the concept ID used in dm+d will normally be updated to either a replacement International concept ID or a new UK Drug Extension ID. Where it has not been possible to update dm+d to align with the International release this refset will provide a link via a SNOMED CT association reference set between the Inactive concept in use in dm+d and the Active replacement in SNOMED CT.
