CMDS View Diagram

CMDS View Diagram Class Definitions

Each CMDS view is represented by a diagram which contains the classes and their relationships which are required to support it. Not all items of information required by a CMDS are defined classes or attributes within the NHS Data Dictionary but instead are derived by combining values of attributes or totalling attributes where particular conditions apply. The classes from which such information is derived or calculated will be shown on the CMDS View diagrams.

By clicking on an class box on the diagram opposite, the selected class definition will be displayed.

Any text within the displayed definition which is in blue and uppercase, is the name of a class or an attribute and if clicked on will display the definition for the class or attribute.
