Framework

This free to access framework offers a short to medium term solution to secure extra clinical capacity and ensure patients can be seen within the trust.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing pressures on NHS waiting lists, with 5 million patients now waiting to start treatment. NHS trusts, CCG’s and their successors ICSs may be looking to insourcing models as a way of managing the backlog and bring down waiting times.

Insourcing models are one way of tackling the backlog while ensuring you can retain capacity planning in house. Insourcing is a term used to describe a range of medical and clinical services, which are deployed to utilise spare, out-of-hours capacity within a trust, in addition to the trust’s existing provisions, with the intention to bolster service outputs and improve efficiency. Such services are typically provided by medical or clinical providers who can provide the specialist capabilities required to deliver an end-to-end service, including clinical governance and oversight.

The agreement includes the provision of clinical services to support you with meeting waiting time targets and easing pressure by utilising the services of providers on NHS premises, allowing you to retain capacity planning.

With the option for direct award and further competition, our insourcing framework offers you access to a broad range of services both adult and paediatric under the Light Touch Regime including, but not limited to:

  • Cardiology diagnostics
