The Department of Health and Social Care and HM Treasury discuss with National Health Service bodies on a regular basis how to improve value for patients and taxpayers in the commissioning and delivery of NHS services. A number of measures are in place, including NHS RightCare, an NHS England supported programme to ensure the best possible care is delivered as efficiently as possible. NHS RightCare has been rolled out across local health economies in England, with all clinical commissioning groups having a dedicated Delivery Partner to help support and implement the RightCare approach.
