Following a successful first year of operation in which our income grew by over £2million, in the last few weeks we have had clarification of CCG plans for extending their Service Level Agreements with the CSU from October 2014 onwards. While all CCGs have indicated they wish to continue to buy some commissioning support services from that date, the majority intend to take at least some services in house from October onwards.
Central Eastern Commissioning Support Unit is a new, customer-focused business in the NHS offering our clients a comprehensive range of tailor-made, professional commissioning and business support services.
We aim to be the CSU of choice adding value in all we do and contributing to improved health outcomes of local people.
We support our customers to commission, and where appropriate, deliver, high quality services for their populations and make best use of the resources available to them.
We currently operate mainly across Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Luton, based in four main offices and working with seventeen main clients. We are exploring opportunities to provide some services to a wider geographical area.
