NJR refreshes online surgeon and hospital information
We are pleased to announce that we have just updated our dedicated website that provides data on joint replacement that has taken place in all the areas where the NJR operates. This refreshed data can be found on our Surgeon and Hospital Profile website: https://surgeonprofile.njrcentre.org.uk
When you visit this website you can search for any surgeon who has carried out one or more hip, knee, ankle, elbow or shoulder replacements in the last three years for any NHS and independent sector hospitals. The data is refreshed annually, each January, to include the updated data from the previous three years.
Through the NJR Surgeon and Hospital Profile service the public can find information about:
- Consultant surgeons who carry out hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder joint replacement surgery in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, and Guernsey.
- Hospitals where those joint replacement operations are carried out.
We continue to work closely with lead specialty body, the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) and other specialist orthopaedic societies, to agree the plan for publication and to ensure the publication of surgeon profiles and data is accurate and robust, for the benefit of patients and the public.
We hope that anyone exploring the website over the coming weeks and months will be able to digest the data and feel assured that quality in joint replacement surgery is being measured and outcomes are monitored and analysed. The programme continues to be developed in partnership with the key orthopaedic associations, including the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA).
