Commissioning Data Sets (CDS) v6.3
An update to CDS, v6.3 has recently been approved by the Data Alliance Partnership Sub Board (DAPSB) on behalf of the Data Alliance Partnership Board (DAPB).
The CDS v6.3 changes are designed to update CDS in line with current clinical and data recording practices, as well as to support recent policy initiatives and enable conformance with other information standards and legislation introduced since CDS v6.2 went live.
The CDS v6.3 update enables SNOMED CT codes to be submitted, including those authored in support of the COVID-19 pandemic, and introduces some minor updates to data items to conform with recent NHS Data Model and Dictionary changes.
CDS v6.3 will go live for data submissions in April 2022, with a 12-month transition period for all submitters to start sending CDS v6.3 data by April 2023.
The updated Information Standards Notice DAPB0092 Amd 64/2020, was published on 15 June 2021 and is available along with supporting documentation.
Requests for changes to the CDS should be submitted via email to [email protected].
Change requests are logged and considered for prioritisation. For changes to be considered, they must have evidence of supporting a business requirement and have sponsorship from the Department of Health.
Changes to the CDS impact on a wide range of organisations and service areas including:
- NHS trusts
- Patient Administration Systems (PAS) suppliers
- Secondary Uses Service
- NHS Data Dictionary
- Payment by Results
The changes need to be assured and approved so that they can be mandated via the issuing of an updated Information Standards Notice and appropriate notice can be given of the implementation date.
