The NHS RightCare programme is a national programme that aims to improve population-based healthcare by focusing on value and reducing unwarranted variation.
Through comparing the Birmingham and Solihull Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) footprint with similar areas nationally, respiratory was identified as a key area in which attempts at system wide improvements would yield significant results.
A Respiratory RightCare optimal design workshop was held on 25 January 2018, attended by around 40 representatives from organisations and professionals spanning the health system. The aim was to better integrate treatment for conditions including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, asthma and pneumonia.
The results of the Optimal Design Workshop will be used to inform a Case for Change that will go before the STP’s Strategic Programme Board and the System Delivery Team.
