The Commissioning Data Set Addressing Grid below illustrates which ORGANISATION CODES should be used to populate the CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY and CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY for each PATIENT / NHS SERVICE AGREEMENT. See the specific ORGANISATION CODE Data Elements for further information on their usage and Organisation Data Service Default Codes etc.This page has been updated in DDCN 1645 (Specialised Commissioning: Removal of Default Code YDD82) to remove the National Commissioning Group, as NHS England became responsible for commissioning all specialised services in April 2013.
The page will be updated as part of an Information Standard to reflect the current arrangements for the Commissioning Data Sets.
Note that the Commissioning Data Set Addressing Grid is only applicable for Commissioning Data Set version 6-2, as CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY and CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY have been replaced with ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER (CDS RECIPIENT) in Commissioning Data Set version 6-3.
Health Care Providers need to specify the ORGANISATIONS that have a right to the commissioning data set data as a CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY or CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY. This is so that they can access the data once it has been stored in the Secondary Uses Service.
- For submissions of CDS V6-2 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.
- Note that if two recipients are identical for example, the ORGANISATION CODE (RESIDENCE RESPONSIBILITY) may be the same as the ORGANISATION CODE (CODE OF COMMISSIONER), only one entry for that ORGANISATION should be made for that recipient.
- Specialised service ACTIVITY commissioned by a regional Specialised Commissioning Hub should include their ORGANISATION CODE as a CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY.
