We have detected that you are using Internet Explorer to visit this website. Internet Explorer is now being phased out by Microsoft. As a result, NHS Digital no longer supports any version of Internet Explorer for our web-based products, as it involves considerable extra effort and expense, which cannot be justified from public funds. Some features on this site will not work. You should use a modern browser such as Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. If you have difficulty installing or accessing a different browser, contact your IT support team.
Response payloads conform to the Organisation Reference Data (ORD) information standard (DCB0090), and you can choose to receive either JSON or XML.
We also have an ODS FHIR API available that contains a reduced dataset of the full ODS record, providing a simple way to support health transactions and interoperability. To choose which one best suits your needs, see Benefits of the ODS API suite.
