What is an organisation identifier?
An organisation identifier is a unique piece of text that definitively identifies an organisation.
Examples include charity numbers and company numbers.
Identifiers are usually assigned by an external body like a regulator.
Findthatcharity uses the Org ID scheme to create identifiers.
GB-NHS gives the scheme for this identifier (NHS Digital - Organisation Data Service), while YDDF2 is the identifier for this organisation within the scheme.
This organisation record is based on data from NHS Support Agency or Shared Service published by NHS Digital.
Depending on the data source, location may describe the headquarters of the organisation rather than the area it operates in.
