Subset Description :
The revised mappings of Pathology bounded code list (PBCL) items to SNOMED CT Observables have been reviewed and stabilised and a new SNOMED CT refset/subset has been generated and published in the April 2017 release to replace the previous SNOMED CT PBCL subset. Note that the new subset would now always be functionally indistinguishable from extracting the SNOMED CONCEPT ID column from the PBCL extended table containing the Read to SNOMED maps. I.e. This subset contains SNOMED CT observables for each member of the PBCL and intended as a direct mapping from PBCL to SNOMED CT with like for like content to enable direct migration.
