Working with you to analyse, plan and improve the quality and value of health and care services in the UK. Providing the skills and resources you need, when you need them.

Supporting NHS partners to improve the health and wellbeing of the UK population

South, Central and West (SCW) is an NHS organisation providing support and transformation services to health and care systems. Our purpose is to support you to achieve the best possible outcomes for people, communities and populations.

We help health and social care organisations deliver the best possible care to people through a range of support services. We are a non-profit making part of the NHS, with shared values and goals for healthier, happier lives.

Our 1,500 dedicated staff cover a wide area across the south of England but we also work nationally, acting as system partners, joining the dots between health and care through service transformation and essential system support.


With deep roots in the health and social care system, we have a clear perspective on both current and future challenges, and a passion for supporting our customers to address them.

Joining the dots across health and care

Providing health and care for millions of people is a challenge facing us all. Connecting people, patients and services can be complex and overwhelming. But it doesn't have to be.
It's our job to make your life easier. Working with you to help prevent people from getting ill, tackle population health inequalities and improve outcomes.
We're part of the NHS family and proud of it. We have the inside knowledge to understand how to join the most complex dots so we can all work better together.
