Personal Demographics Service Notifications - FHIR API
Receive notifications about changes to a patient's demographic details, including birth, death, change of address and change of GP.
Use this API to receive notifications about changes to a patient's demographic details, including:
change of address
change of GP
We share information about these events, using a publication-subscription model, with health and care workers in other organisations such as GPs, Emergency Departments and Local Authorities. To receive these notifications you'll need to subscribe to them via National Events Management Service (NEMS).
For example, when we update Personal Demographics Service (PDS) with a birth, PDS sends a birth notification event containing information about the birth to NEMS. NEMS then sends the event to all healthcare workers who have subscribed to receive birth notifications.
