Directory of Services - Urgent and Emergency Care - REST API
Use this API to access Directory of Services (DoS) information on a wide range of health and care services across England.
You can search for services based on a combination of parameters:
the patient’s age, sex, and current location
the patient’s clinical need
You can also search for services using similar parameters, such as by:
service type - find matching service type ID, location and optional patient details
clinical term - find matching symptoms, location and optional patient details
ODS code - find active services with a matching ODS code
service ID - find active services with a matching service identifier
This service is widely used in an Urgent and Emergency Care context.
It is not currently suitable for referrals from services using NHS Pathways outcomes, such as NHS 111 - for this, use the Directory of Services - Urgent and Emergency Care - SOAP API.
You need a valid DoS account to use this API.
