NEQOS services are delivered by clinical epidemiological expertise combined with high level analytical skills.

NEQOS has Service Level Agreements (SLA) with subscribers, which provide core projects and services as well as tailored bespoke projects.

NEQOS is also commissioned to deliver for specific quality measurement projects.

NEQOS is managed under a joint agreement between Northumberland Tyne and Wear and South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trusts.
