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 our Organisation Data Service (ODS). This FHIR API contains a reduced dataset, most useful for helping with transactions, while the ODS ORD API contains the full dataset from ODS.
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.
For more details, see the Introduction to FHIR® ODS Lookup API.
