After we implement the One Drug Database (ODD) changes, our systems will have data in the new format aligned to dm+d. This will include historic remapped data up to and including December 2019.
The refresh with January 2020 data will take place on the scheduled due date.
Supporting guidance to explain the differences in the data will be sent the week beginning 9 March.
We've produced mapping documents to help with the changes to data formatting.
You can read more about the improvements and the changes that we’ll be making, and how this affects our systems and reports.
You can also view a test file containing March 2019 data (ZIP: 144MB) for mapping purposes. (The ZIP file contains one Excel file which is 4.7GB).
