Our Programme

RightCare is now part of NHS England.

This website is no longer in use and will shortly be closed. You can now access all RightCare information, support and materials on the new NHS RightCare website.


The primary objective for Right Care is to maximise value:

  • the value that the patient derives from their own care and treatment
  • the value the whole population derives from the investment in their healthcare

To build on the success and value of the Right Care programme, NHS England and Public Health England are taking forward the Right Care approach through new programmes to ensure that it becomes embedded in the new commissioning and public health agendas for the NHS…

The genesis of the Right Care programme lies in the original Quality, Improvement, Prevention and Productivity (QIPP) programme initiated by the Department of Health in 2009. When the national QIPP programme was wound up Right Care was asked to ensure that its core programmes continue with new hosting arrangements with NHS England and Public Health England.

Right Care is now an established programme of NHS England, reporting to Paul Baumann as Director of Finance. A National Right Care Director is now in post, Professor Matthew Cripps, and future funding has been secured to large scale expansion of Right Care as a transformational programme across NHS England.

On this page you can learn more about our future programme and about our Right Care approach which is being adopted by Clinical Commissioning Groups across the NHS.

You can learn more about Right Care and uor outputs in our our projects and approaches in our Resource Centre.


Our “Programme on a Page”, well several pages actually, outlines the philosphy of Right Care and our future plans for collaborations across the NHS.
