The Department announced on the 26 January that all trusts with private finance initiative schemes with an expected capital value of greater than £75 million would need to reconfirm their plans. These reviews ensure that all schemes properly take account of the current reforms to the national health service (NHS) such as choice, a movement of services into primary and community settings, the new financial regime as well long-term affordability, assumptions on efficiency gains and income growth. On 18 August, it was announced that six schemes had passed the review. The scheme at Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one where further work is needed in order to address outstanding affordability and capacity issues. An announcement about the scheme will be made shortly.
