Greater Manchester CSU launches website

Greater Manchester Commissioning Support Unit (GMCSU) has launched a new website to help commissioners, providers and local authorities make connections and benefit from support to save money and improve outcomes. 

The website reflects GMCSU’s role to provide specialist clinical support, healthcare commissioning and business support services. It also includes the latest NHS news, upcoming events and opinions and blogs. 

Leigh Griffin, GMCSU managing director, said: “The new website not only tells people what we do but it also shows our values through highlighting our work in local communities and with partners, colleagues and clients. Our focus is on showing how the organisation works together as a whole not just as individual specialised services. 

“We want to build excellent relationships with clients and we hope our website will help to demonstrate how, as an expert and trusted partner, we offer a valued source of expertise and insight into the NHS, local authorities and the context in which they work.” 

The website is at www.gmcsu.co.uk
