Documentation URL:


Use these API standards to support the triage and onward referral of patients who are interacting with Urgent and Emergency Care services such as NHS 111.

These API standards support:

  • self-triage by the patient

  • triage by non-clinical staff, such as call handlers

  • triage by clinicians

They support the following interactions:

  • triage through a series of questions and responses to determine the correct outcome or onward referral for the patient

  • directory look-up to identify services that can meet the need or outcome identified for the patient - onward referral of the patient to the appropriate healthcare service along with an encounter report that contains structured triage and other information

  • Before you begin any development work using these API standards, contact us to discuss your best options.
