Why we’re different – NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU
Home > About us > Why we’re different

We’re a unique organisation, designed to be both of and for the NHS. We’ve been essential to the parts of the healthcare system that we support throughout the unprecedented changes of the last few years. As our customers and their needs have changed, we have too. We’ve faced every new challenge and opportunity together with them.

We’ve developed unparalleled experience across a wide range of areas that positions us above other organisations providing business and commissioning support, clinical support and support to STPs and integrated care systems.

We deliver added value for all of our customers, whatever services they’re buying from us, while maintaining among the highest levels of customer satisfaction of any commissioning support unit (CSU). How? Here are just some of the benefits we’re delivering to our customers today:
