General Practitioner Branch Surgeries in England

$179 / year

This dataset comprises of Codes for General Practitioner (GP) branch surgeries in England. It includes information about Government Office Region and Parent Organization Code, Joined and Left Parent Organization Date information and Telephone Number for several branch surgeries in England.


The Organization Data Service (ODS) is provided by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). It is responsible for the publication of all organization and practitioner codes and national policy and standards with regard to the majority of organization codes, and encompasses the functionality and services previously provided by the National Administrative Codes Service (NACS).

These code standards form part of the NHS data standards. The HSCIC is also responsible for the day-to-day operation of the ODS and for its overall development.

Data for General Medical Practices, General Medical Practitioners (GPs), Prescribing Cost Centres and Dispensaries are supplied by the NHS Prescription Services and are used to facilitate their remit to remunerate dispensing contractors and provide the NHS with financial, prescribing and drug information.

Data for GPs and GP Surgeries has traditionally been supplied by the NHS Prescription Service of the NHS Business Services Authority; however this data only includes main surgeries – the more peripheral branch surgeries that these practices often run are not included in the NHS Prescription Service data. The NHS Prescription Service relies on their contacts within Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to inform them of updates and additions to GP Practices within their area.
