NJR data collection forms
Data from surgical procedures should be entered directly into the NJR data entry system. Where this is not feasible, data collection forms can be used by hospital staff to record data, prior to later electronic submission.
The set of data fields collected by the NJR is known as the Minimum Data Set (MDS). The majority of MDS data fields relate to the patient’s operation details and are collected in the operating theatre. We updated our data set collection in June this year, it is now version 8 (MDSv8). You can find out more about the changes we have introduced to develop our data collection and some useful FAQs here.
- MDSv8 forms can be used for capturing procedures performed before and after 12 June 2023
An important subset of data fields in the MDS are the patient’s personal details (surname, forename, date of birth, home postcode and NHS number or national patient identifier). Patients must give their consent for this data to be recorded on the registry.
The MDS is periodically reviewed to ensure that it takes account of clinical developments and continues to meet the aims of the NJR in monitoring surgical performance. The Data Entry System (the electronic system for collection and transfer of data) and the MDS proformas (paper forms for recording NJR data prior to electronic submission) are reviewed in line with approved modifications to the dataset.
Previous iterations of NJR MDS forms are available on request by contacting the NJR Service Desk.
