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.
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.
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.
- The CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY must be allocated on the first creation and submission of a CDS Type for a PATIENT and must not change even if the ADDRESS or ORGANISATION CODE (RESIDENCE RESPONSIBILITY) of the PATIENT changes during the lifetime of the Commissioning Data Set record otherwise duplicate Commissioning Data Set data may be lodged in the Secondary Uses Service database.
See the supporting information in Commissioning Data Set Submission Protocol for a detailed explanation.
- 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 Group should include their ORGANISATION CODE as a CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY. ACTIVITY commissioned by a shared service Organisation or other consortium of Primary Care Trusts, should similarly include the ORGANISATION CODE of the shared service or the lead Primary Care Trust, if this does not already appear as a CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY or CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY.
