Commissioning Data Sets
The Commissioning Data Set is the basic structure used for the submission of commissioning data to the Secondary Uses Service. Every secondary care provider in England has to send a set of standard Commissioning Data Sets to the Secondary Uses Service which contains details of all the care they have provided.
Each Commissioning Data Set name is in Title Case and where the name of a Data Set is Aqua Blue, it indicates that it is a hyperlink and if clicked on will display the Data Set.

Commissioning Data Set Supporting Information
Further information relating to Commissioning Data Sets can be accessed from the Commissioning Data Sets menu in the "Left Hand Frame".
This section provides help and guidance for transmitting the Commissioning Data Sets to the Secondary Uses Service, for example, the XML Schema TRUD Download. The Commissioning Data Set XML Schema, documentation and Release Notes can be downloaded via this page.
Note: XML based messaging has been mandated as the standard to be used for transmitting the Commissioning Data Sets. The XML Schema defines the nationally agreed data specification.
The Commissioning Data Set XML Message Schema is a technical document that is designed for use by anyone setting up and maintaining systems to flow Commissioning Data Sets. It offers a visual representation of the actual XML Schema against which the data is validated.
Supporting Data Sets
Supporting Data Sets are subsets of Commissioning Data Sets and can be accessed from the Front Page as with any other Data Sets, for example, the Critical Care Minimum Data Set. All relevant Commissioning Data Sets can be accessed by clicking on the hyperlinks from this Data Set.
