Notes:

Definition:
This is the address of the physical site receiving a CDS interchange.

Usage:
This is a mandatory data element when receiving CDS interchanges.
Every ORGANISATION wishing to receive data from the service must register its CDS INTERCHANGE RECEIVER IDENTITY . Where an Organisation acts on behalf of another NHS Organisation, care must be taken to ensure the correct use of the address.

For onward delivery, the service will insert the identity in the CDS INTERCHANGE SENDER IDENTITY as the address of the physical site to send the data and the address of the recipient into the CDS INTERCHANGE RECEIVER IDENTITY.

XML Interchanges:
All CDS-XML interchanges submitted must contain a CDS INTERCHANGE RECEIVER IDENTITY.

NHSCDS EDIFACT Interchanges:
The CDS INTERCHANGE RECEIVER IDENTITY is represented by the EDI Receiver Address data contained in the EDIFACT UNB S003/0010 Recipient Identification data element and must conform to the NHS EDI Addressing Standards as specified in NWNDT/T1.20.2 as allocated by the NHS Information Authority.
Note that this utilises a 15 alpha-character format although the EDIFACT data element supports an an35 format.
EDI gateway management and translation solution sets usually generate the required EDIFACT Service Segments (UNB, UNH, UNT, UNZ).

CDS INTERFACE GATEWAY SERVICE Interchanges:
The CDS INTERCHANGE RECEIVER IDENTITY is represented by the EDI Receiver Address contained in the Destination Identification data field as defined in the CDS Interface Gateway Service Control record. The authorised source of this definition is contained in the NWCS User Guide.
Note that the MHMDS Assembler software generates this data into its CDS IGS control record before submitting data.
