NJR Strategic Plan
We are driven to achieve the objectives and goals that are determined in our strategic plans and we review our plan regularly to ensure that it is supporting the priority improvement areas for joint replacement surgery. Our review takes place in consultation with the NJR Steering Committee, which also ensures wide representation into its development from across NJR’s stakeholders.
The very first plan was developed following a review, and subsequent revision of, the aims that were set out for the National Joint Registry when we were first established in 2002.
Our plan identifies a number of strategic pillars and supporting themes, along with the work programmes that we will conduct to support our activity for the delivery of the objectives and goals based on those themes.
The broad areas covered in the plan are:
- Patient safety
- Improving patient outcomes
- Value of joint replacement surgery
- Enabling and supporting research
- Data quality improvement
- Patient and public involvement
- Stakeholder engagement and communication
- Enabling access to data and information
- Key partnerships and international collaboration
- Robust operating model and governance
The strategic plan is supported by our annual plans, developed to detail the work required to deliver the strategy, and based on priorities and budgets set by our Steering Committee. Following review and approval by the Committee, the progress of the annual plan deliverables is monitored and reported on a quarterly basis.
