What is GIS?

GIS stands for Geographic Information Systems. You maybe more familiar with it than you realise, most of us encounter GIS everyday without realising it. GIS lets us visualise data with the use of maps. The value lies in the ability to use GIS to question, analyze, and intepret data to understand relationships, patterns and trends. There is growing interest and awareness of the economic and strategic value of GIS for everyone.
GIS helps to provide:
  • Cost savings from greater service efficiency
  • Better decision making
  • Improved communication
  • Management over a wide geographic area
  • About Us

    We provide Geographic Intelligence and Mapping services to Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS England, GP Practices, Public Health, Community Health and Acute Hospital Trusts. These services are provided under specific GIS Service Level Agreements (SLA) or on an ad-hoc consultancy basis.


    As well as the organisations within the South, Central and West Commissioning Support (SCWCS) area, we also provide the service to many additional organisations outside the CSU area. A map of the organisations supported for GIS mapping services is available at the bottom of the page.

    The Ordnance Survey Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) means that HealthGIS is able to access digital map data and therefore provide services across the whole of England and Wales.
