There are different licencing requirements depending on how you or your organisation will use the CCSD Schedule.  These are set out below - along with links to the relevant online application forms.

 

Individual Providers

e.g. Consultants

If you are an individual provider of healthcare services, such as a consultant, podiatrist, dentist etc you will not be required to pay for a licence. However, you will need to apply online and agree to the terms and conditions of use before you are able to access the Members' pages of the CCSD website.

 

Provider Organisations

e.g. Private Hospitals

Organisations which provide healthcare services, such as hospitals, day care units, specialty units, etc will not be required to pay for a licence. However, you will need to apply online. After completing these details you will be sent a licence agreement. 

Once Capita Health has received a signed copy of your licence agreement you will be granted access to the Members' pages of CCSD website.

Only one username and password for the Members' area is issued per organisation. Subsidiaries of a provider group that has already obtained a licence are covered by the terms of that licence and should approach their head office in order to access the Members' area.
 

 

Other Organisations

e.g. Health Insurers or Software Providers etc

If you are a health insurer, health insurance administration organisation, software provider or any other organisation that wishes to use the CCSD Schedule for commercial or research purposes, you will need to purchase an annual licence. 

You will need to apply online, and will then be sent a licence agreement and invoice. Once Capita Health has received your licence fee payment and a signed copy of your licence agreement, you will be granted access to the Members' pages of CCSD website.

Please note that whilst all users of the CCSD Schedule must agree to the licence terms and conditions, the CCSD Group's intention is that CCSD members do not gain financial profit from licensing. The requirement for a licence fee is to ensure that a reasonable surplus is created, enabling the maintenance of, and other potential future improvements to the CCSD Schedule. If there is any surplus from the licence revenue it will be used to either further improve the Schedule or to reduce the licence fee for the following year.  Please contact us  if you encounter any problems with the online application or have any queries not answered in our FAQs.
