NJR data for Best Practice Tariff
Since 2014, NJR data has been used for determining NHS provider compliance with the Best Practice Tariff for primary hip and knee replacements in England. The data below relate to a twelve month period and will be updated quarterly in April, July, October and January.
January 2018 (data run on 18 December 2017)
Please note: there is a new trust (Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust) for which the NJR has removed the compliance as we are currently waiting for the new ODS code in order to match NJR and HES data.
October 2017 (data run on 25 September 2017)
Please note: due to the lack of monthly HES data there is no compliance for NHS trusts in this quarter’s file.

Payment of the BPT for primary hip and knee replacement surgery is conditional on criteria linked to data collected through the National Joint Registry as follows; a minimum NJR compliance rate of 85% and an NJR ‘unknown’ consent rate below 15% (where patient consent was not recorded as a ‘yes’ or ‘no)’.
