Help: Diagrams

The NHS Data Model and Dictionary has a number of diagrams which represent specific parts of the NHS Data Model.

The diagrams show:

There are three frames to each Diagram:

  • "Left Hand Frame": shows the Diagrams Menu.

  • "Middle Frame":
    • Displays the diagram, which contains Classes and selected Attributes associated to that Class.
    • If you click on any Class or Attribute, the description will be displayed in the "Right Hand Frame".

  • "Right Hand Frame":
    • Initially shows the Diagram overview page, which provides information relating to the selected diagram.
    • Displays definitions viewed from the "Middle Frame."

  • Where information is displayed in frames, the width of the frames can be adjusted by clicking on the “vertical” scroll bar and dragging it left or right as appropriate.
