ORGANISATION CODE (CODE OF COMMISSIONER) is the same as attribute ORGANISATION CODE.
The NHS England document "Who pays? Determining responsibility for payments to providers" sets out a framework for establishing responsibility for commissioning an individual's care within the NHS, (i.e. determining who pays for a PATIENT’s care.)
The document includes information on the following:
- General Rules
- Exceptions to the general rules
- Examples to help clarify the boundaries of responsibility between commissioning Organisations.
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.
