Our Partners

We are committed to meeting the evolving needs of our customers, supporting them to deliver high quality health and care services which improve outcomes for their population.

Meeting this commitment requires a dynamic network of partners, each bringing unique expertise, perspectives, skills and knowledge to complement our established approach to multidisciplinary, collaborative working. Our partners range from global specialists – bringing experience from other countries and healthcare models – to the Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise (VCFSE) sector – with its strong local profile and relationships.

As one of four Commissioning Support Units (CSUs), we also work in partnership with Midlands and Lancashire CSU, North of England Commissioning Support and South, Central and West CSU to pool our expertise, experience and resources to deliver against the demands of larger projects.
