De-Identification Data Items

The Standardisation Committee for Care Information (SCCI) issued an Advance Notification for this proposed information standard on 7 December 2016 which proposed that the standard would be implemented from October 2017.

In October 2017 NHS England, the organisation developing the information standard,  advised the Data Coordination Board (DCB) that the development timescales had changed and, on this basis, the DCB formally withdrew the published Advance Notification

Update December 2017

NHS England has now fully withdrawn this standard and work will not be continuing on it's development; any future work in this area will be undertaken as part of the National Data Architecture being driven by NHS Digital. If you have any queries about this please contact
