The Spatial Hub has added a national dataset of all NHS hospitals (sourced from NHS24) to its maintained collection of health and social care datasets.

This dataset provides an accurate location for mapping and spatial analysis purposes, a unique identifier for data joining, a ‘search engine optimised’ metadata record that can easily be found via Google searches and is provided as a web service that can be streamed directly over the internet into anyone’s application. These datasets are now being actively used by the data community, including SAGE, to inform their decision making and operational planning around the Covid response.
