NJR subscriptions for the period 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018 are now due
The NJR is responsible as an organisation for self-funding its activities, and delivery of its strategic work programme is through a mandated annual subscription charge. This subscription, originally collected through a levy applied on the sale of components, was changed to a subscription charge in 2014, enabling us to reduce to costs to Trusts and Health Boards.

The NJR offers a considerable number of services and has worked hard to ensure that the subscription model used not only enables savings but ensures providers pay a fair and proportionate contribution. The subscription charge has remained at its current rate since 2014 with the cost frozen again for 2017/18.
Subscription now includes EMBED service
To offer even greater value for money, for 2017/18 the NJR’s enhanced implant price-benchmarking service, EMBED, will be included as part of the standard NJR subscription charge. This was previously charged at a cost of £5,000 per NHS Trust/Health Board.
The EMBED service offers greater capability to hospital procurement and healthcare management teams to drill down further into pricing data, including the ability to give surgeons individual reports relating to their own implant use.
