XML Organisation Data Products

This page contains background information and a range of supporting materials for the XML Organisation Reference Data Products.

Please read our products guide before accessing any of the other files.

The move to XML is one part of a wider programme of changes to Organisation Reference Data. Full details are available within an Information Standard.

The standard has been updated to inform consumers that daily updates to the Health and Social Care Organisation Reference Data are now available via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) – please see APIs for the Organisation data Service.
