Benefits of the NJR’s work

We have conducted a programme of work which aimed to review and profile the successes and benefits that the NJR has realised and delivered for our various stakeholders through our work over the past twenty-plus years.

Our focus on the impact we have made has examined the value of the important tools and reporting systems that the NJR has developed over those years and that we make available to a range of our stakeholders, as well as the health benefits to wider society of a comprehensive national registry, with global exemplar status.

The first phase of this work focussed on outlining to hospital executives what the tangible benefits are of the services that are available to them to monitor their work in orthopaedics. This summary of benefits portal access has been shared with senior staff in all NHS and independent sector hospitals.

The second phase of the work has taken a broader view of the improvements in joint replacement surgery practice over the years and assesses the wider benefits of our work to hospitals, surgeons, patients, health service regulators, manufacturers and policy-makers that have been associated with the development of the NJR’s activities over the years.

We have summarised these benefits in a series of articles that have been published in the Journal of Trauma and Orthopaedics (JTO) (with the first of these having been published in June 2023, the second part in the September 2023 issue and the final part in March 2024). The articles explore the benefits the NJR provides for these different stakeholder groups: and are also summarised in a sharable poster format as below.
