We help 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 the NHS can treat more people effectively, now and in the future. It’s unacceptable to see inconsistent differences across the country around the type of care patients receive. NHS RightCare’s work is core to ensuring the best possible care is delivered everywhere.
Using leading edge medical evidence and practical support helps local health economies understand how money is spent to deliver the best care in different parts of the country.
NHS RightCare advises local health economies to:
Make the best use of their resources – by tackling over use and underuse of resources.
Understand their performance – by identifying variation between demographically similar populations so they can adopt and implement optimal care pathways more efficiently and effectively.
Talk together about the same things – about population healthcare rather than organisations and encouraging joint decision-making.
Focus on areas of greatest opportunity by identifying priority programmes which offer the best opportunities to improve healthcare for people and ensuring taxpayer money goes as far as possible.
Use tried and tested evidence based processes to make sustainable improvement to reduce unwarranted variation.
