I don’t seem to be getting the right response for a query on the API.
RQM25 is the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital Urgent Care Centre.
For reference I get the response I expect when I submit ODS codes for any of the other organizations in my data, e.g. R1H12 gives me the Royal London Hospital.
I would be grateful if anyone could shed light on whether this is an API issue or a me issue.
Thanks for your query, please see the response from the ODS team:
Thank you for contacting the ODS team.
The code RQM25 - URGENT CARE CENTRE is listed as an EPACT code. These are not included in the API. You can view our ORD Scope definition Organisation Data Service - data coverage - NHS Digital this will show what data is included in our API and other data sources.
Could you clarify something for me. The RQM25 code came from an ECDS extract. I believe the field in question (Organisation Site Identifier of Treatment) should contain an organisation site identifier:
ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (datadictionary.nhs.uk)
Do you happen to know if this should/should not include epact codes?
