All about the common foundation capabilities.

Back to Visitors and Migrants - Introduction.


The foundations capability cover the basic API requirements and prerequisites to utilise the Visitors and Migrants API.



You’ll need to be able to provide a verified NHS Number to use an API. This can be achieved using a spine accredited system, a DBs batch-traced record (CSV), or using a Spine Mini Services Provider (HL7v3).


In order to be a compliant FHIR server, provider systems need to expose a valid FHIR Conformance profile.

Please also refer to Development Guidance - FHIR API Guidance - Common API Guidance for full details on the common FHIR API patterns.
