ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT)

Change to Data Element: Changed Description

Format/Length:min an5 max an9
National Codes: 
ODS Default Codes:R9998 - Not a hospital site
 89999 - Non-NHS UK Provider where no ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER has been issued
 89997 - Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER has been issued

Notes:
ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) is the same as attribute ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER.

ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) is the ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER of the Organisation Site where the PATIENT was treated, i.e. it should enable the treating Organisation to be identified.

ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) identifies the Organisation Site within the Organisation on which the PATIENT was treated, since facilities may vary on different hospital sites.

The code recorded should always be the national code; if the treatment is sub-commissioned to another NHS Health Care Provider or an independent UK provider, the ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) used should be the ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER of the Health Care Provider actually carrying out the work.

Where treatment is sub-commissioned to an overseas provider the Organisation Data Service Default Code 89997 'Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER has been issued' is applicable.

Each Organisation has a unique ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER. However, where an Organisation has more than one site from which it provides SERVICES, then each site is uniquely identified. These sites are Organisation Sites and are uniquely identified by an ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER.

For out-patients, ACTIVITY may take place outside the hospital, such as in the PATIENT'S home; in such cases, raising a site code is impractical. Therefore, code R9998 'Not a hospital site' would be used in these circumstances.
Note: LOCATION CLASS is used in the Commissioning Data Set (CDS) message to indicate the classification of the physical LOCATION within which the ACTIVITY occurred.Note: LOCATION CLASS is used in the Commissioning Data Set (CDS) message to indicate the physical LOCATION within which the ACTIVITY occurred. 

Use in the Future Outpatient CDS:
If the INTENDED SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) is not known, this data element should be omitted.

SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) will be replaced with ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT), when it has been approved for use in national information standards.

PATIENT USUAL ADDRESS

Change to Data Element: Changed Description

Format/Length:an175 (5 lines each an35)
National Codes: 
Default Codes: 

Notes:
PATIENT USUAL ADDRESS  is the same as attribute ADDRESS.

PATIENT USUAL ADDRESS is the usual ADDRESS nominated by the PATIENT, where the ADDRESS ASSOCIATION TYPE is 'Main Permanent Residence' or 'Other Permanent Residence'.PATIENT USUAL ADDRESS is the usual ADDRESS nominated by the PATIENT, where the ADDRESS ASSOCIATION TYPE is National Code 'Main Permanent Residence' or 'Other Permanent Residence'.

For the Commissioning Data Sets it is necessary whenever an ADDRESS is included in a Commissioning Data Set message to allow correct interpretation by the recipient. The following values have been used in Commissioning Data Set message implementations and are recommended to be used.

1 or STo denote a "Label format" ADDRESS, i.e. an ADDRESS consisting of up to five address lines of 35 characters where each line is left justified as a specific data element
2 or UTo denote an unstructured ADDRESS, i.e. an ADDRESS consisting of up to five contiguous data elements of 35 characters representing a 175 character string

If PATIENTS usually resident elsewhere are staying in hotels, hostels or other residential establishments for a short term, for example, a week, they should be recorded as staying at their usual place of residence. However if it is long term, such as at boarding school, the School ADDRESS must be recorded. University students may nominate either their home ADDRESS or the ADDRESS of their university accommodation.

Where PATIENTS are not capable of supplying this information, because of age or mental illness, for example, then the PERSON responsible for the PATIENT, such as a parent or guardian, should nominate the PATIENT USUAL ADDRESS.

PATIENTS not able to provide an ADDRESS should be asked for their most recent ADDRESS. If this cannot be established, record the ADDRESS as 'No fixed abode' or 'Address unknown'. These PATIENTS are regarded as resident in the local geographical district for commissioning purposes.

For birth episodes this should refer to the mother's usual place of residence.

The format of 5 lines of an35 conforms to ADDRESS FORMAT TYPE 'Unstructured Format'. The format refers to the physical layout of the ADDRESS, not the logical layout, and does not require intelligent intervention when splitting the text string into lines. For example:

 Flat 1, 21 Arbuthnott Avenue, Pollo (35 chars)
 k Estate, Lesser Hinkley, Staffords (35 chars)
 hire (4 chars)

The PATIENT's name and ADDRESS should be withheld from any commissioning record which contains a valid NHS NUMBER.
