Organisation Data Service - ORD API

Access details of health and social care organisations, such as trusts or GP practices, using our Organisation Data Service (ODS) ORD API

Overview

Use this API to access details of health and social care organisations, such as trusts or GP practices, using our Organisation Data Service (ODS).

You can:

  • search for organisations
  • get organisation details for a given ODS code
  • get a list of recently modified organisations
  • get metadata for roles, relationships and record classes

For more details, see Organisation Data Service: Guidance for developers.

Note this ODS ORD API contains the full ODS record dataset. For alternatives, see Technology below.


API status

This API is stable.


Technology

This API is a REST API.

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.


Interactions

For a full list of interactions for this API, see the ODS ORD API endpoints.

For details on the general structure of the interactions, see Organisation Data Service: Guidance for developers.
