NHS Trusts, Mental Health Trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have an increasing requirement for fully compliant supplementary solutions for the delivery of patient care, to help ensure Key Performance Indicators are maintained. 

This short to medium term solution allows trusts to retain capacity planning in-house and ensure patients can be seen within the trust.
