Many will have come across NHS RightCare. I think it has laudable aims. To be honest, whenever we as GPs have sat down and tried to look at it, we have struggled to get any value out of it and one of our complaints has always been that we differ from the areas they say we should be doing as well as.
Well it’s interesting that I’ve met a health informatics company who claim that they don’t agree at all with the Peer CCGs that NHS Rightcare uses. They say they’ve tried matching CCGs on a range of factors and don’t get the same CCGs at all.
