Removed patients

Hoping someone can clarify something for me, will removed (e.g Embarked, moved to Scotland etc) participants appear in PDS searches.

The spec states that removal from registration extension is included on a participant retrieval.

An extension to carry the reason a PDS record has been removed from the Patient Demographic Service. This will only be populated on a retrieval and not a search.

Related to this.

Where is this extension defined, I’d like to understand the codesystem in more detail as it relates to registration use case/workflow (NHS Number allocation) I’m looking at.

Is this really registration removed? I’m thinking this is really NHS England is not the current ‘insurance provider’ and NHS Scotland, NI, Defence Medical Services, NHS Wales, etc is.
