NHS England leads the National Health Service (NHS) in England. We set the priorities and direction of the NHS and encourage and inform the national debate to improve health and care.

We want everyone to have greater control of their health and their wellbeing, and to be supported to live longer, healthier lives by high quality health and care services that are compassionate, inclusive and constantly-improving.

NHS England shares out more than £100 billion in funds and holds organisations to account for spending this money effectively for patients and efficiently for the tax payer. A lot of the work we do involves the commissioning of health care services in England. We commission the contracts for GPs, pharmacists, and dentists and we support local health services that are led by groups of GPs called Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). CCGs plan and pay for local services such as hospitals and ambulance services.

We have devised a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View. And now, with our partners, we are delivering that vision. This vision shows that we are getting serious about prevention, identifying and delivering improvements in health care, redesigning the NHS so it continues to meet the needs of patients, ensuring the NHS is financially sustainable and engaging the public in this whole process.

We strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations.

Please note, if the advertised role is based in London on an Agenda for Change Pay Band, it will attract a High Cost Area Supplement. If this post is an Executive or Senior Manager (ESM) role or Medical Leader position this supplement is not applicable.

NHS RightCare is a national NHS England supported programme, contributing to the financial sustainability of the NHS which is a key priority of its Five Year Forward View.

Analysis and Intelligence is central to the NHS RightCare approach.  The Analytical Team designs and develops products to help local NHS organisations and plays a key role in ensuring that local health economies;

  • Make the best use of their resources – by tackling over and under-use of these
  • Understand their performance – by identifying variation between demographically similar populations so they can adopt and implement optimal care pathways more efficiently and effectively
  • Focus on areas of greatest opportunity by identifying priority programmes which offer the best means to improve healthcare for people.

This is an exciting area to work in and offers plenty of opportunities to work on a wide variety of challenging and high priority analytical projects to improve healthcare within the NHS.

NHS RightCare helps to ensure the best possible care is delivered as efficiently as possible which is essential for both patients and the NHS.  Ensuring people access the right care, in the right place at the right time, means more people can be treated effectively, now and in the future.  Using leading edge medical evidence and practical support, NHS RightCare helps local health economies to understand how money is spent to deliver the best care in different parts of the country.

NHS RightCare actively works with every clinical commissioning group (CCG) and sustainable transformation partnership (STP) in England and comprises professionals providing delivery, analytical, clinical advisory and programme management resource both internally and externally to the programme.
