Client organisation details
Which client should I invoice?
Refer to NHS Choices website, where the correct Trust/ authority can be found. Please click here to visit the website.
Here you can enter a search on post code or street name.
It is imperative that invoices are billed to the correct entity (commissioning or provisioning) to avoid the invoice being rejected by the client, as this will cause delays. If there is any doubt please contact the client to confirm.
Which hospitals/ locations belong to a particular client organisation?
The NHS Choices website can help. Please click here to visit the website and in the Site Search enter the name of the client. A list of locations and hospitals for the organisation will be displayed.
What is a client organisation and payables code?
This is a coding system to ensure that invoices are scanned to the correct organisation. This will prevent delays in payment. The code consists of two parts and needs to be displayed as part of the invoice address, e.g. RVJ Payables 6345. This code represents North Bristol NHS Trust, 'RVJ' being the organisation code (Org ID) provided by the Department of Health and '6345' being the Oracle system identifier for the organisation, also known as payables code.
