The move will create one of the largest commissioning support service providers in England. 
Alison Hughes, managing director of WSYB CSU said: "This is an exciting move for us. By combining our strengths we're able to offer our customers a wider choice of services and skills, from a broader pool of talented, expert and creative staff from across our region.”
Maddy Ruff, managing director of NYH CSU said: ”This move also allies us with the Yorkshire and Humber region, an area which has always been innovative and forward-thinking, and now has a global reputation.  
"Our vision as a merged organisation is to deliver truly transformational change and we are well-placed, both geographically and economically, to do this.”
The process of merging is still at a very early stage, and staff and customers are being fully consulted.
