    Usage:
    See the supporting information in the Commissioning Data Set Submission Protocol for detailed information.CDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER is a mandatory data item when the Net Change Update Mechanism is used and strongly recommended for use with the Bulk Replacement Update Mechanism.

    This is a mandatory data item when the Net Change Update Mechanism is used and strongly recommended for use with the Bulk Replacement Update Mechanism.

    However it is strongly advised that users of the Bulk Replacement Mechanism maintain a correctly generated CDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER within the Commissioning data. This will establish a migration path towards the use of the Net Change Mechanism and will also then minimise the risk of creating duplicate Commissioning Data Set data in the Secondary Uses Service database.

    • Note that senders of Commissioning Data Set data remain directly responsible for the integrity of the CDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER
    • It is a mandatory requirement for all submissions using the Net Change Update Mechanism that these two components are constructed correctly to ensure uniqueness of CDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS across the NHS. 
    • The structure of 3b and 3c allows the EAL End of Period Census and the EAL Event During Period Census for the same EAL Entry to be linked.

    There are circumstances in patient care application systems where the control of the UID key integrity may be suspect. These issues include:

    a) Episode deletion (not resulting in a Commissioning Data Set deletion of previously submitted data sent to the original Commissioner);
    b) Episode re-sequencing (not resulting in a corresponding Commissioning Data Set records being sent);
    c) Service agreement alterations not resulting in correct adjustments - Old Service Agreement deletion / New Service Agreement addition
    d) Re-admissions causing duplicate keys on the Secondary Uses Service database.

    Each use of an NHS ORGANISATION CODE within a Commissioning Data Set message must be associated with the release version of the NHS Organisation Code scheme. At present this may be derived locally by NHS IT systems.

    The following values have been informally used in many Commissioning Data Set implementations and are recommended to be used:

    A or O* Signifying "OLD" (pre-April 1996) to denote an Organisation Code issued before, and in use up to the 1996 major re-issue
    B or N* Signifying "NEW" (post-April 1996) to denote an Organisation Code issued from April 1996
    A or O* Signifying "OLD" (pre-April 1996) to denote an ORGANISATION CODE issued before, and in use up to the 1996 major re-issue
    B or N* Signifying "NEW" (post-April 1996) to denote an ORGANISATION CODE issued from April 1996


    * The values of A and B must be used in the formatting of the CDS UNIQUE IDENTIFIER.
