|A number of NHS digital's APIs are messaging APIs that use MESH as the transport layer. For a full list, see the [API catalogue, filtered on MESH APIs](https://digital.nhs.uk/developer/api-catalogue?filter=mesh). In particular, this includes [National Event Management Service - FHIR API](https://digital.nhs.uk/developer/api-catalogue/national-events-management-service-fhir), for publishing and subscribing to healthcare events such as updates to patient demographic details.

|The NHS Digital API Catalogue uses a development process based on [GDS agile delivery](https://www.gov.uk/service-manual/agile-delivery). You can find out more about how they develop APIs, technical standards and specifications in their [reference guide](https://digital.nhs.uk/developer/guides-and-documentation/reference-guide)
