In 2011/12 Monitor found the trust in breach of the terms of its authorisation [1]:

The decision is triggered by the Trust’s failure to effectively address concerns raised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) about the Trust’s compliance with standards for nutritional needs across some of its wards. Monitor is concerned that the Trust’s Board has not been taking a proactive approach in identifying and addressing problems quickly enough and considers this evidence of weakness in its governance processes.

The trust has a private patient unit called the Charnwood Suite [2] with 8 beds:

The Charnwood Suite opened in 1990 in order to accommodate all private patients within the James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.  It offers all the advantages of private healthcare with the support and facilities of a modern, well equipped NHS hospital.

In addition, the trust offers amenity beds:

The Charnwood Suite also accepts patients who are having surgery as an NHS patient but who wish to pay for a private room (or amenity bed).  These rooms are subject to availability, and cannot be guaranteed for the duration of your stay in hospital.  This type of service is different to a private admission as no fees are paid to the specialist and all aspects of care are the same as for NHS patients elsewhere in the Trust.
