Are all of the NHS services on this map run by private companies?

No, an NHS outsourced service is any service which is being run by a non-NHS organisation (some are private companies, others are non-profit organisations). We believe that all NHS outsourcing negatively impacts the NHS, for three main reasons. The contracts are often short-term, which can impact caring relationships between NHS staff and patients. The tendering of government contracts is costly and creates bureaucracy. Finally (and importantly) the outsourcing of NHS services destroys the inherent architecture of our public healthcare system, weakening the relationships between services and staff.
