RightStaff logoRightStaff

RightStaff (powered by Ryalto technology) is a mobile app co-developed with NHS organisations and healthcare professionals. Collectively we have the mission to re-ignite the passion and desirability of being a professional in healthcare.

The RightStaff app actively engages healthcare professionals and gives them the freedom to choose when and where they work through:

  • Greater matching of an individual’s availability and skills to shifts within the Trust
  • Connecting colleagues within a Trust allowing them to communicate in one single place
  • Providing easy to access to training, e-learning material and news
  • Helping professionals develop a personal skillset allowing more working in different departments and wards

We believe that all healthcare professionals should be able to choose when and where they want to work. We also know engaged and well informed workforces have been shown to improve the quality of patient care.

Since our launch at the Chief Nursing Officer’s Summit in February 2017, RightStaff is being implemented across a number of Trusts led by a team with significant healthcare experience.
