Why work with MLCSU?

Why work with Midlands and Lancashire CSU?

We work with you as a trusted partner - your success is our success.

It’s vital our client support is the best. Our sole focus is you, giving you what you need to help transform services for patients.

We add value to our customers through everything we do. We provide economies of scale, delivering robust transactional processes and sustainable transformational change, supporting all points of the commissioning cycle.

We achieve this with a powerful delivery model of locally embedded teams led by a dedicated service director and underpinned by an integrated, comprehensive and high quality support service.

With a ‘think holistic, act personal’ approach, we offer services with a bespoke touch, assuring customers access to all the services they need. We make sure each also benefits from our knowledge of best practice.

In February 2015, we successfully attained a position on the NHS England Lead Provider Framework as a high quality assured provider of Commissioning Support Services.

Tailored support

Customers benefit from tailored support packages led by a service director who ensures our services, and those of our supply chain partners, effectively integrate and work together seamlessly.

The service director is the ‘go-to’ person, working closely with key customer stakeholders to get to the heart of the organisation and its priorities. This understanding means we ensure we have the right people in place to deliver when it matters.

Clear governance

Our governance arrangements are clear and direct. Service delivery teams and specialists on the ground are accountable to the service directors, who work with customers to agree requirements.

Service directors report to our director of operations who, in turn, is responsible to our managing director. Our suppliers also integrate with this model.

Supply chain

We have a robust and sustainable approach to managing our supply chain. Working with suppliers and partners acting as one team, this adds to the richness and diversity of our skills and expertise.

Our effective induction systems ensure everyone knows how to work with us and how to behave with our customers. Offering a clear understanding of roles and responsibilities within a single governance structure, it delivers compliance with legal and best practice. Delivery, quality and value for money are also managed to jointly agreed KPIs.

We have a range of strategic partnerships with whom we’ve built close working, board-level relationships. We also work with other international organisations – and embrace national and local voluntary sector organisations, such as non-profit, social value-creating group the Chamberlain Forum.

Our supply chain is flexible and responsive with framework contracts already in place we can procure high quality support at short notice.

Integrated team

To deliver seamless services, we work as an integrated team with customers and their suppliers. We decide responsibilities together, made possible through close working relationships.
