CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY is the same as attribute ORGANISATION CODE.
A Recipient may be an agency or SERVICE provider that carries out the receiving (and perhaps other) processes on behalf of the NHS Organisation that ultimately uses the data. There may be multiple recipients for Commissioning data.
Where NHS England is the responsible commissioner for a specialised SERVICE, based on the NHS England Commissioner Assignment Method (CAM), one of the Specialised Commissioning Hub ORGANISATION CODES should be used depending on which Health Care Provider delivered the SERVICE, e.g. NHS Trust, Independent Sector Healthcare Provider.
The NHS Digital website provides a mapping list of which Health Care Providers map to which Specialised Commissioning Hub. The mapping can be found on the Organisation Data Service web pages at: Provider to Commissioning Hub Mapping.
