What does the framework cover agreement?
The framework agreement supports the use of insourcing support services across the NHS, enabling trusts to secure extra clinical capacity and help meet increasing demand.
This short to medium term solution allows trusts to retain capacity planning in-house and ensures that patients can be seen within the trust.
Insourcing is defined as the employment of a third-party organisation to perform medical services/procedures on trust premises. It differs to locum and agency staffing supply with the full end to end service being provided, not just staff.
The supplier uses the NHS organisation's premises and equipment to deliver these services. Insourcing is largely focused on secondary care and the services are generally used out of hours when the premises/equipment is not being used by the NHS, thus making efficient use of the services.
