Visit the NHS RightCare Stand N30

NHS RightCare has a joint stand at the event in collaboration with Getting It Right First Time and the NHS Elective Care Transformation Programme. The cohesive aim of these three complementary programmes is to provide full system patient care to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients and securing the most efficient use of resources to create a sustainable NHS. Each programme is clinically-led, and together they help identify opportunities to reduce unwarranted variation, aiming to remove barriers to care, across all local health and social care economies in England.

Visit the stand (N30) to find out more about the programmes and the RightCare approach to tackle unwarranted variation and improve health and outcomes.
