Regional Product Development Lead
NHS RightCare is a national NHS England supported programme that focuses on improving population healthcare in a way that contributes to the financial sustainability of the NHS. This is a key priority of NHS England’s Five Year Forward View, with delivery being driven through Regional Teams.
NHS RightCare helps to ensure the best possible care is delivered as efficiently as possible which is essential for both patients and the NHS. Ensuring people access the right care, in the right place at the right time, means more people can be treated effectively, now and in the future. Using leading edge medical evidence and practical support, NHS RightCare helps local health economies to understand how money is spent to deliver the best care in different parts of the country.
NHS RightCare actively works with every clinical commissioning group (CCG) and sustainable transformation partnership (STP) in England and comprises professionals of all backgrounds providing delivery, analytical, clinical advisory and programme management support.
NHS RightCare supports local health economies to:
- Make the best use of their resources - by tackling over and under-use of these, as identified by unwarranted variation in healthcare and associated costs
- Understand their performance - by identifying variation between demographically similar populations so they can adopt and implement optimal care pathways more efficiently and effectively
- Focus on areas of greatest opportunity by identifying priority programmes which offer the best means to improve healthcare for people.
The team is rapidly expanding, with new staff coming on-board within the NHS England National Team to assist the Regional teams in providing direct delivery support to CCGs and STPs to implement the NHS RightCare approach.
