Established by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) in a unique partnership with digital experts Sopra Steria, we deliver modern corporate services to the NHS, which improve efficiency and quality, save time and money, and support world-class patient care.
Since being formed in 2005 we have grown to become one of the largest and most successful shared service providers in the world and are internationally-renowned in our field.
Today we provide a mix of Finance & Accounting (F&A), Procurement, Employment Services (ES) and Innovation & Technology Services (ITS) to more than 250 NHS organisations across the country. This includes 111 NHS providers and arm's length bodies, and every NHS commissioning organisation in England. It means that, in total, we deliver at least one corporate service to around two thirds of all NHS provider trusts and commissioners.
This size and scope means we are the leaders in our field, with unrivalled knowledge and experience that helps NHS organisations overcome many of the day-to-day challenges they face.
We are continually investing in corporate services on behalf of the NHS. Our new digital solutions and automation programmes are delivering faster and more accurate ways of working, and an enhanced, more intuitive user experience.
