The article presents the message delivered by NHS Employers deputy director Sian Thomas at The Changing Face of the HR Function conference concerning recruitment outsourcing in Great Britain. Thomas admitted that there was not a lot of outsourcing in the NHS because the NHS is inherently risk averse, and outsourcing is inherently risky. But she said she could not understand why there was not more outsourcing of recruitment in general. She added that outsourcing works if there is an internal change management process.
