NHS RightCare -
At its June meeting, the Diabetes Think Tank welcomed the National Director for NHS RightCare, Professor Matthew Cripps, who presented members with an overview of the work of NHS RightCare in supporting local health economies. The Think Tank has produced an infographic illustrating members' recommendations on the guiding principles that should underpin the use of the RightCare methodology for diabetes services.
During the course of the discussion, members made the following recommendations to support the implementation of the Right Care programme:
- Secure and support clinical engagement
- Ensure a collaborative approach
- Demonstrate 'quick wins' early on
- Ensure the patient voice is heard
Members also agreed the Diabetes Think Tank will support the roll out of the RightCare programme and, where possible, support local partners to use the approach effectively to drive improvements in diabetes care.
