Dear info.gov,

Thank you for the reply.

What was meant by Insourcing was where services that are offered in hours at the trust are mirrored out of hours or on weekends to reduce waiting times or offer flexible appointments.

The service is run on the trusts premises using the Trusts equipment but staff and resources are provided by a Third party.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah James
