A brief introduction to getting started with the FHIR NHS Scheduling API.

Introduction

This API is still in development, it has been designed around an Urgent & Emergency Care scenario.

In Scope

The initial requirement is to find appointment Slots and create an Appointment in a free slot. The interactions in scope are: search Slot (a RESTful search) and create Appointment.

Out of Scope

The implementation does not cover Read, Update or Delete for an Appointment, however this functionality is expected in future iterations of the API
