Welcome from the National Joint Registry of England, Wales and Northern Ireland

NJR covers England, Wales and NI

Hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder joint replacements are common and highly successful operations that bring many patients relief from pain and improved mobility. Thousands of these joint replacement operations take place in the UK every year.

The National Joint Registry (NJR) was set up by the Department of Health and Welsh Government in 2002 to collect information on all hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder replacement operations and to monitor the performance of joint replacement implants.

Consultant outcomes publication 2014

Guidance is now available for all orthopaedic surgeons within scope for individual consultant-level data publication in 2014. This includes important updates, information about what will change from publication in 2013 and how surgeons and their hospitals can access and validate NJR data.
