With over 10 years of experience, NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU (MLCSU) is the largest provider of All-Age Continuing Care services in England. We are responsible for managing over £1 billion funded care expenditure and an active caseload of 18,000, across nine integrated care systems (ICSs).
Our size, scale and specialist expertise enable us to deliver unparalleled magnitude and resilience in all types of health-funded care delivery. We are driven by innovation, ideas, subject matter experts, and strong leadership.
As part of the NHS, we specialise in health and social care integration, allowing us to collaborate effectively across the healthcare community, ensuring that services and funding remain within the NHS. This approach achieves economies of scale, appropriate allocation of funding, and promotes a consistent approach to care.
We actively participate in local, regional, and national All-Age Continuing Care networks, which include continuing healthcare (CHC), funded nursing care, (FNC), and children and young people’s (CYP) continuing care. This involvement allows us to share our knowledge of system challenges, lessons learned, best practices, and insights into the care market.
We understand that as health and care decision-makers, you are driven to make a difference for individuals and services, aiming to develop a healthier population overall.
Our Personalised Healthcare Commissioning (PHC) team is here to help you achieve your goals by providing the right healthcare support at the right time, meeting the needs of both you and individuals within your system.
