In 2011/12 the trust was still under review due to previous breaches to the terms of its authorisation. In addition, the trust received Public Dividend Capital of £5m as part of an agreed recovery plan.

In the Forward Plan [1] the trust identifies its competitors:

Within Milton Keynes there are two other providers offering NHS treatment. There is the Blakelands NHS Treatment Centre, run by Ramsay Healthcare which provides predominantly NHS services, and BMI’s The Saxon Clinic, which is predominately a private provider. The Saxon Clinic is situated adjacent to the hospital campus.

In the Forward Plan the trust says that it will increase investment in its private patient facility with a private partner:

The Trust will also look to invest in its private patient facility, which will require some initial capital investment which is planned to be developed as part of a PPP – the effect of this has not been modelled as part of this submission as the impact is not yet clear. This will be in addition to the planned increase in private patient income already identified in 2012/13 CIP schemes.

Minutes of the meeting of the Health and Community Wellbeing Select Committee of Milton Keynes Council [2] (November 2011) say that the trust intends to create a private patient unit:

(f) The Trust hoped to develop private patient opportunities in the future, possibly using two wards which had been closed.  However no private work carried out at the Hospital would displace NHS services, which remained the priority.
