Organisation Data Service - ORD API
Use this API to access details of health and social care organisations in England and Wales, such as trusts or GP practices, using our Organisation Data Service (ODS).
This ORD-compatible API contains the full dataset from ODS, including information on succession (history) and relationships.
We also have an ODS FHIR API which contains a reduced dataset, most useful for transactions.
search for organisations
get the organisation details for a given ODS code
get a list of recently modified organisations
get metadata for roles, relationships and record classes
get a list of organisations that have been modified since a specific date to synchronise data locally
An ODS code is a unique identification code for an organisation that interacts with any area of the NHS.
This API returns the following full dataset for an organisation, when searched with an ODS code:
organisation - ODS code, name, open date, close date, last change date and status if active or inactive
address - house or flat number, line 1, line 2, line 3, town, postcode and country
contacts - email, website, telephone and fax
roles - primary and non-primary roles
relationships - legal and operational relationships including history where it was captured by ODS
succession - history of legal succession following reconfiguration or mergers
additional attributes - data items included to support policy and pragmatic change
For an alternative API that returns a reduced dataset, use the ODS FHIR API.
