You can find out if a patient lives in an area of deprivation using the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) tool.
The SIMD tool helps you identify patients that may need different levels of care and enables you to manage their claims more effectively. This tool will be updated twice a year and was last updated on 24 May 2022.
Before you get started
When using postcode analysis, SIMD 1 is listed as being most deprived and SIMD 5 being least deprived.
