Our work

Please note this content was published before July 1 2022. The Health and Care Act 2022 introduced significant changes to how the NHS in England is organised and these may not be reflected below.

NHS North East and Yorkshire supports healthcare commissioning, assurance and offer support to providers and local health systems to help them improve across our region. We are responsible for;

  • commissioning of primary care services including GPs, dentists, opticians and pharmacists
  • commissioning of screening and immunisations programmes, specialised services and health services for those in the armed forces
  • commissioning of health services for children, young people and adults in secure and detained services across the North East and Yorkshire
  • Assurance, delivery and leadership support to local NHS organisations, as well as independent providers that provide NHS-funded care
