Dear FOI (THE ROYAL ORTHOPAEDIC HOSPITAL NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

What was meant Insourcing was when a third party uses the Trust's premises to offer extended services ie additional clinics, or theatres.

Yours sincerely,

Hi Sarah

Thank you for your response.

I am sorry for any inconvenience. Can I just clarify, is that for operating on Royal Orthopaedic Hospital patients of just using the premises to see their own?

Please advise.

Thanks.

Sharon.
