When I queried the answer the CCG said:

‘Outsourcing’ tends to refer to CCG functions or services that are provided by other agencies (e.g. payroll services, Human Resources). This is different to ‘commissioned’ services, which are primarily the health services that the CCG purchases on behalf of the people of Wirral. I hope that help clarifies the response.
