North of England Commissioning Support Unit

About us

About us
NECS is a Commissioning Support Unit (CSU) working across England to support NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and others in carrying out commissioning functions which achieve great healthcare commissioning outcomes and efficiencies.

As an end to end supplier, we provide a total solution (diagnostic to decision to evaluation), enabled by our operating model. Our approach is to understand the ‘whole’ problem to provide the best outcomes for our customers’ patients, which coupled with our portable tools, techniques and experience, enable us to get to the root cause and act.

We employ more than 800 staff with a wide range of skills and experience in designing and delivering innovative and high quality healthcare commissioning solutions. Our headquarters are in Durham and we have teams based across the north of England.

Supporting CCGs, Commissioning Support Units, Foundation Trusts, Local Authorities, NHS England, Area Teams, Clinical Networks and the Police, we deliver services locally, regionally and nationally.
