NHS Digital Organisation Data Service (ODS) Python / Pandas Data Loader

One of the nice things about the Python pandas data analysis package is that there is a small – but growing – amount of support for downloading data from third party sources directly as a pandas dataframe using the pandas-datareader.

So I thought I’d have a go at producing a package inspired by the pandas wrapper for the World Bank indicators API for downloading administrative data from the NHS Digital Organisation Data Service. You can find the package here: python-pandas-datareader-NHSDigital.

There’s also examples of how to use the package here: python-pandas-datareader-NHSDigital demo notebook.
