Change summary - 2021 CCG mergers

This is a summary of changes to organisation reference data (ORD) due to Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) mergers. The changes will take effect from 1 April 2021.

The following information provides a summary of the data changes being introduced to Organisation Reference Data (ORD) as a result of the 2021 Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) mergers.

The mergers are subject to NHS England and Improvement (NHSEI) approval by January 2021. Those approved will take effect from April 2021.

We recommend that ORD users assess the impact of the changes, to enable the completion of any preparatory work needed on their systems and processes, ready for implementation of the changes


What we are changing

On 1 April 2021, 38 Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are merging to create 9 new CCGs.

Organisation Data Service (ODS) will publish 9 new CCG codes on the ODS system from 10 February 2021. They will have a future legal start date value of 1 April 2021.

The 9 new CCG codes will be available in the ODS API, ODS portal, Care Identity Service (CIS) and Spine from 11 February 2021.

They will also be available in the monthly ODS XML file and legacy CSV files on 26 February 2021. Between 1 to 9 April 2021, ODS will reparent organisation records (ODS codes) that have a relationship to one of the 38 CCG codes, over to the 9 new CCG codes.

The 38 legacy CCG codes will then be legally closed with a legal close date value of 31 March 2021. The 38 legacy CCG codes are scheduled to be operationally closed on 30 September 2021.

There are no STP or CCG boundary changes as part of the 2021 CCG mergers. This will be assured by confirmation from NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSEi) CCG Region leads, upon them requesting a reserved CCG code from ODS.

There are no 2021 CCG mergers occurring in the North West (Y62) or South West (Y58) NHS England Regions.
