NHS 111 API
Share information between NHS 111 and other organisations, such as GPs and ambulance services, and query the Repeat Caller Service.
Use this API for point-to-point messaging to share information between NHS 111 and other organisations, such as GPs and ambulance services, when a patient interacts with NHS 111.
It supports the following communication types from NHS 111:
- advise a healthcare facility or GP of an expected visit from a patient who has called NHS 111
- advise a patient's GP when a patient is referred to another healthcare facility
- advise the ambulance service that a patient requires an ambulance
- query the Repeat Caller Service
This API is stable.
This API uses synchronous ITK SOAP with an ITK CDA payload.
