About us


NECS works across the UK to support health and social care customers in meeting strategic and operational challenges, to improve outcomes and increase efficiency.

Whether in support of long-term strategic change or transformation, short-term high-impact activity or managing back-office services at scale to relieve your organisation of its management and operational burdens, NECS can design and deliver cost-effective, innovative and high quality solutions to your complex healthcare challenges.

NECS combines specialist skills and expertise with scale and resilience to achieve required results.  Many of our people have extensive NHS and public sector experience and we combine core NHS values with a sharp focus on customer care and a relentless pursuit of continuous improvement. We very much see ourselves as a key partner in the future success of the healthcare system and we take our share of the responsibility for shaping effective delivery.

We understand how complex the health and social care sector is and have regularly proven to an excellent standard that we can deliver projects involving a wide range of partners and stakeholders to STPs, ACOs, FTs and CCGs.

To solve problems, from stating the problem to evaluating the impact of actions taken, we assemble dedicated, high calibre, multi-disciplinary teams, supported by a broad spectrum of external talent and organisations in our robust supply chain. Using our broad knowledge and experience we can work across health and social care systems to achieve your outcomes and deliver system-wide improvements. Examples of our work can be seen in our published case studies.

Employing over 1,000 experienced and skilled people, NECS has office bases across the UK and staff working the length and breadth of the country.  Current customers include local authorities, a range of healthcare providers in the NHS that make up STPs including emerging ACOs, third and private sector organisations.

As a growing organisation we have worked hard to get to where we are.  We are passionate about providing excellent customer service and our intention is to ensure that our customers are delighted with their experience.
