The NHS Health Check dataset and accompanying mapping guidance are available at NHS Health Check dataset (HSCIC webpage)

A refreshed data set was released in March 2015 which now includes SNOMED codes. Commissioners should be considering the use of SNOMED codes over the next two years as NHS Health and Social Care Information Centre have confirmed that they will supersede Read 2 and CTv3.
