South, Central and West CSU is a leading provider of commissioning support services


GO Procurement Finalist BadgeWe collaborate with customers and partners across the health and social care system to manage, analyse, and improve performance and enable our customers to achieve the best possible outcomes for their patients and populations.

Our customers include NHS England, clinical commissioning groups, provider trusts, general practices, and numerous social care, community care, and voluntary sector organisations.

We provide localised support across the south of England covering 10,800 square miles and a population of 10 million people, as well as running national and regional development programmes.

Our organisation has been formed as  the result of a merger on 1 April 2015 between South, Central Southern, and South West Commissioning Support Units. This extends the range of services we can offer customers and increases the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of our solutions.

We are proud to say we have been shortlisted for the Enhancing Care by Sharing Data and Information category at the 2015 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards. We are the only Commissioning Support Unit on the whole HSJ Awards shortlist
