BATH NHS ORGANISATIONS
Scripts to extract data from the NHS Organisational Data Service to grab data about NHS and related medical care providers in the Bath Area.
The project has very simple dependencies relying on core libraries plus the Hpricot, RubyZip and JSON gems:
sudo gem install json sudo gem install hpricot sudo gem install rubyzip
To download and cache all the relevant files run:
To grab just the data that is updated weekly by the ODS run:
To grab all of the other additional data, e.g. GP Practices, Pharmacies, Treatment Centres etc run:
The data is all stored in the data sub-directory of the project.
Currently all the scripts do is filter the published files to grab just those NHS Organisations with Bath (BA1, BA2) postcodes.
