How does it work?

The Insourcing of Clinical Services Framework aims to support the increasingly popular use of medical insourcing across the NHS to secure extra clinical capacity to meet increasing demand. This short to medium-term solution allows trusts to retain capacity planning in house and ensure patients can be seen within the trust or via a remote/virtual consultation if appropriate. There are many benefits to this clinical insourcing framework, including increased visibility of the patient pathway and greater resilience of local services.

Dermatology

More than half the population is affected annually by skin disorders, and consultations in primary care and elective care continue to rise, driven by the increasingly ageing population, rising expectations of skin appearance and availability of improved treatments.

To help support increasing service pressures we can see patients for the first attendance through to day-case procedures and follow-up. Our consultants will follow all local referral pathways and if required, we also provide a one-stop service to patients from the clinic attendance, with minor procedures services which can be run concurrently with our outpatient clinics.

ENT and audiology

Over nine million people in England are living with some form of hearing loss (Action on Hearing Loss, 2015).

We offer ear, nose and throat (“ENT”) and audiology services which include a full pathway service from first attendance in clinic and pre-assessment to surgery and post-procedure follow-up using specialist consultants and expert nursing teams.

Respiratory

Respiratory diseases place enormous pressure on the acute healthcare system especially during the winter months. Running additional respiratory clinics to support the increasing demand can avoid unnecessary admissions by allowing rapid access to respiratory physicians and specialist nurses to enable stable patients to be managed in the community.

We provide consultant respiratory physicians to support hospitals with outpatient services following local process and pathways of care.
