BNF SNOMED mapping

We publish BNF / SNOMED mapping data. It represents mapped data between the Dictionary of Medicines and Devices (dm+d) and the legacy Master Data Replacement (MDR) drug database.

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 February 2020 contains information relating to December 2019. 

How often we'll publish data

We'll publish refreshed data on a monthly basis. Data will relate to the latest available dispensing months data in ePACT2 at the time of publication. For example, data published by the end of July 2019 containing data relating to May 2019 dispensed prescriptions.
