FOI 2023 98 - Insourcing


Information Requested:

Please can you provide some clarification the below queries:

- Has the authority utilised "Insourcing" with the FY 22/23?
- What was the insourcing spend by the authority for 22/23?
- How was Insourcing procured by the authority? Was a particular framework used?
- Outside of procurement team who is the Senior Officer responsible for Insourcing?

For clarity, 'insourcing' is defined as: "where an NHS organisation sub-contracts medical services/procedures. It differs to locum supply in that the full end to end service is provided, not just staff."


Information provided for the answer:

Thank you for your recent request dated 10th July 2023.

Public Health Wales has utilised insourcing within the financial year 2022/2023. The spend for this within the financial year 2022/2023 is £15,066. The insourcing was procured following Public Health Wales policies and procedures. There is no one senior officer responsible for insourcing as this is done in individual departments and the procurement team.
