The National Non-Admitted Patient Collection (NNPAC) provides national consistent data on non admitted patient (outpatient and emergency department) activity. Its primary use will be for the calculation of Inter District Flows (IDFs) but may also help provide information to measure health outcomes and inform decisions on funding allocations and policy.

Transaction records containing details of the non admitted patient event including date, facility and type of service. All records must have a valid NHI number.

This data guide describes the classes and objects that make up the National Non-Admitted Patients Collection Business Objects Universe. It:

  • describes the information available within the Business Objects Universe
  • provides an alphabetical listing of classes and objects
  • links objects within the Business Objects Universe to fields and elements with the NNPAC Data Dictionary.

It should be read in conjunction with the NNPAC data dictionary.

Please note, Business Objects is currently being decommissioned.
