    Hi Sara,

    Thanks for getting back to me. As you probably know the NHS released a statement a few months ago saying they were looking at LOINC as the central coding system for pathology test names in the new National Laboratory Medicine Catalogue (NLMC). It’s a big change in policy, they we’re fully SNOMED-CT post-coordinated mapping before that. They’ve done a lot of work in compiling approved names for tests, so I have a feeling they will do the linking as part of that project. It’s all a bit up in the air at the moment, but very exciting as I’m a big fan of LOINC!

    Many thanks,

    Chris

    Hi Daniel,

    Has anyone come up with a translation table between LOINC and SNOMED CT?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    That’s a great help! Thanks very much for replying. I’ll contact the US office and try my luck. I knew it would be out there somewhere. I’m surprised they don’t make more of that. I would think it would be a big advantage when they tender for a contract.
    All the best,
    Chris
