An Open API to Health and Social Care Organisation Reference Data (deprecated)

ODS Team | February 2018


About this Service

The service hosted at this location was withdrawn on 28th February 2018*.

NHS Digital will be releasing a new service called the ODS API Suite during April 2018 and all consumers are requested to intercept this service for Live use – see: for more information including availability of test environments.



*The API service hosted at this location was released as a proof of concept during March 2017 to allow NHS Digital to receive feedback on the functionality of the interface and the data that is returned, including the protocol and the underlying data model.  It was made clear to any consumers that no dependencies were to be built on the service to support Live use and that no SLA existed.
