The trust used to host a ISTC for Interhealth Canada who vacated the facility in May 2011 when their five year contract expired. The unit is now the trust’s orthopaedic centre [1].

In the Forward Plan [2] the trust says it will:

Maximised for the provision of self-funded activity covering procedures no longer commissioned by the NHS, eg varicose veins

In the SWOT analysis, listed in the Opportunities column is:

Developing opportunities for patients to self fund for low cost interventions no-longer commissioned.

In the Threat column the trust lists AQP

Competition from both NHS and private providers is likely to become more intense over the period under review primarily as a result of the ‘any qualified provider contract’

In the strategic plan section, for the next three years the section makes the prediction:

Growth initiative (12/13):-

Patient self-funding activity £0.2m

This is suggesting a three-fold increase on 2011/12.
