A partner in our clients’ future
North West Commissioning Support Unit (NWCSU) aims to be a trusted and valued partner, working alongside our clients to enable excellence in the commissioning and delivery of healthcare services.
We provide the support, expertise and essential services to enable clients to deliver the best possible healthcare outcomes for the populations they serve. Our clients include clinical commissioning groups, local authorities, healthcare providers and a host of other public and voluntary sector bodies, primarily across the North West, but also nationally.
Working from strategic locations across Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Cheshire, our team delivers one of the largest portfolios of support services in the country, working closely with the region’s 24 clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), serving a population of 5.2 million with a combined budget of £6.6bn.
Working in collaboration with our clients we offer an integrated and innovative multidisciplinary approach to deliver real results. Our talented and professional team draws on skills, experience and capabilities from across the NHS, augmented with new insights and ideas from carefully selected and skilled private sector partners.
This blend gives us a unique understanding and ability to navigate the constraints and challenges facing our clients and the wider health economy, both now and into the future.
NWCSU has a strong belief in improvement through innovation and best practice. This is embedded within all the services we deliver.
Motivated by the desire to help clients to transform their local healthcare economies and deliver tangible benefits for patients and their communities, we see ourselves as an expert and trusted partner, with shared values and common goals.
NWCSU was created in October 2014, through the coming together of the commissioning support units in Greater Manchester and Cheshire and Merseyside. The purpose of creating the new organisation was to take the strengths and learning from each CSU, to create an organisation that provides high-quality services designed around the needs of our clients.
