The hospital is due to be built under the Private Finance Initiative - where companies put up the money to build establishments such as hospitals or schools, and the NHS rents the new facilities back over thirty years. The trust must make sure it can coverthe payments to the businesses who put up the money to build it. But it must also make sure it uses its space in a way that will guarantee enough NHS funding to keep it in the black, which means it can no longer spend so much on the scheme.
