Channel 3 Consulting has won a place on the Elis Group Framework.

The new framework, introduced by six commissioning support units, covers 50% of England’s commissioning area. The CSUs provide services for 90 clinical commissioning groups, and are:

• NHS Staffordshire & Lancashire CSU
• NHS North of England CSU
• NHS South West CSU
• NHS Cheshire& Merseyside CSU
• NHS South CSU

The framework agreement enables CSUs and other organisations within the health landscape to access services and provide support. Alongside our partners on the framework, Rubicon Health Consulting, we are now able to provide services and support via the framework in the following areas:

• Needs assessment
• Best practice advice
• Organisational development

Our place on the framework complements our work that has led us to be on the niche supplier list, G-Cloud and ConsultancyONE.

Channel 3 Group’s CEO, Jessica Bradshaw said: “We are really delighted to be on the framework. Alongside our partners Rubicon, we beat stiff competition to win a place on the framework. The framework brings a wealth of partnership opportunities and should ensure better commissioning for all.”
