National Codes:

 89999 - Non-NHS UK Provider where no ORGANISATION SITE CODE has been issued
 89997 - Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION SITE CODE has been issued

Notes:
SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) is the same as attribute ORGANISATION SITE CODE.

SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) is the ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the ORGANISATION where the PATIENT was treated, i.e. it should enable the treating ORGANISATION to be identified.

This identifies the ORGANISATION SITE within the ORGANISATION on which the PATIENT was treated, since facilities may vary on different hospital sites.

The code recorded should always be the national code; if the treatment is sub-commissioned to another NHS Health Care Provider or an independent UK provider, the SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) used should be the ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the Health Care Provider actually carrying out the work.

Where treatment is sub-commissioned to an overseas provider the Organisation Data Service Default Code 89997 'Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION SITE CODE has been issued' is applicable. 

Each ORGANISATION has a unique ORGANISATION CODE. However, where an ORGANISATION has more than one site from which it provides SERVICES, then each site is uniquely identified. These sites are ORGANISATION SITES and are uniquely identified by ORGANISATION SITE CODE. The ORGANISATION SITE CODE contains the first 3 digits of the ORGANISATION CODE with the last two digits being the site identifier.

Example:

RA700ORGANISATION CODE of the ORGANISATION 
RA701ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the first identified ORGANISATION SITE within the ORGANISATION 
RA702ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the second identified ORGANISATION SITE within the ORGANISATION 

For out-patients, ACTIVITY may take place outside the hospital, such as in the PATIENT'S home; in such cases, raising a site code is impractical. Therefore, code R9998 'Not a hospital site (for use on Out-Patient CDS)' would be used in these circumstances.
Note: LOCATION CLASS is used in the Commissioning Data Set (CDS) message to indicate the classification of the physical LOCATION within which the ACTIVITY occurred. 

Use in the Future Outpatient CDS:
If the INTENDED SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) is not known, this data element should be omitted.
