Developing an Adult Social Care terminology product

Socitm Advisory has been contracted by NHS England to develop a suite of Adult Social Care terminology standards. We are seeking input from stakeholders to help shape this work.


The project is a long-term (12-month) undertaking, with a discovery phase running until the end of June 2022. It has arisen from four discovery products commissioned by NHS England/Improvement Transformation Directorate (NHSEI TD) in early 2021, which identified significant gaps in information standards and the requirement for Social Care Terminology and Information Standards. Its key aims and objectives are:


  • To provide an assured national Adult Social Care Terminology product and service to underpin a wide range of known, emergent and future health and social care transformational integration and interoperability initiatives.

  • To build a ‘product’ or suite of resources that catalogue, consolidate, and standardise existing terminology resources and controlled vocabularies relevant to social care – and to provide access to these resources.
