Use these integrations to provide vaccination information to us at NHS Digital.
You can send us information relating to:
These integrations specify the flow of vaccination-related information from healthcare settings including:
hospital hubs - NHS providers vaccinating on site
local vaccine services – community or primary care led services which could include primary care facilities, retail, community facilities, temporary structures or roving teams
vaccination centres – large sites such as sports and conference venues set up for high volumes of people
These integrations use MESH to send and receive pipe-delimited (|) and not-sign-delimited (¬) files.
For more details on how to interact with end users to collect COVID-19 information safely, see the functional specifications under 'Additional guidance'.
For FHIR standards relating to the flow of information directly back to the patient's GP, see Digital Medicine - FHIR.
For FHIR standards relating to the flow of information to other care providers such as Child Health, see Vaccination Events - FHIR.
Environments and testing
These integrations use MESH.
As a developer, you are most likely to want to connect to MESH using either the MESH client or the MESH API.
For more details about using the MESH client, see MESH client.
For the MESH API, there are several independent, externally accessible instances of MESH you can use for testing. For full details, see MESH API - Environments and testing.
