Insourcing Frameworks

This framework aims to facilitate the growing adoption of insourcing across the NHS to secure additional clinical capacity in response to rising demand. This short to medium-term strategy enables Trusts to maintain capacity planning internally and ensure patients receive care within the Trust. Advantages include enhanced visibility of the patient pathway and improved resilience of local services.

What does the framework cover?

Provision of a multi-disciplinary consultant let service
Triage and clinical assessment of patients
Clinically appropriate diagnostics and treatment (excluding surgical interventions beyond day surgery)
Provision of onward referral or discharge
Follow up appointments
Service delivery on site
