BNF SNOMED mapping

We publish BNF/SNOMED mapping data.

One Drug Database (ODD) has been implemented. As the data has now moved to the new format, we have updated the BNF SNOMED mapping file to reflect this. The 'MDR: Product Description' has been replaced with the new naming convention, 'BNF Description'.

The dataset shows one row for every VMP / AMP / VMPP / AMPP record and a field showing which BNF code this maps to.

The data published in December 2022 contains information relating to October 2022. 

How often we'll publish data

We'll publish refreshed data monthly. Data will relate to the latest available dispensing month's data in ePACT2 at the time of publication. For example, data published by the end of December 2022 contains data relating to October 2022 dispensed prescriptions.
