Organisation Data Service - FHIR API
Use this API to access a reduced dataset of health and social care organisations in England and Wales, such as trusts or GP practices, using the Organisation Data Service (ODS).
This FHIR API contains a reduced dataset, most useful for transactions. To access the full ODS dataset, including data about succession (history) or relationships, use the ODS ORD API.
You can search for information about an organisation using one or more of their:
last updated date
active or inactive status
postcode or city
organisation's role or primary role, such as trusts or GP practices
You can also limit the number of results returned, or just request a count of the number of search results.
