CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY is the same as attribute ORGANISATION CODE.
CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY is the mandatory NHS ORGANISATION CODE (or valid Organisation Data Service Default Code) representing the ORGANISATION determined to be the Commissioning Data Set Prime Recipient of the Commissioning Data Set Message as indicated in the Commissioning Data Set Addressing Grid.
For submissions of CDS Version 6-2 and CDS V6-2-2 Type 011 - Emergency Care Commissioning Data Set, the CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY is Mandatory for submission in the CDS Type 005B - CDS Transaction Header Group - Bulk Update Protocol and CDS Type 005N - CDS Transaction Header Group - Net Change Protocol. However, it no longer forms part of the key for the process of determining duplicate records within the Secondary Uses Service. Note that the CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY continues to be used to determine data access requirements within the Secondary Uses Service for Commissioning Data Set version 6-2 submissions.
CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY does not identify the first or most important recipient of data, i.e. there is no inference of primacy of one recipient over another.
Please note that the following Organisation Data Service Default Codes must not be used in the Commissioning Data Set (CDS) header because they are not default Commissioner codes:
- Q99 - High Level Health Geography/Primary Care Organisation of Residence Not Known
- X98 - Primary Care Organisation Not Applicable (Overseas Visitors)
