NJR the ‘jewel in the crown of patient safety initiatives’

We recently held an early evening reception to celebrate over 20 years of the work of the registry, providing a wonderful opportunity to focus on our impact as a recognised global exemplar of an implantable medical devices registry. The event showcased the value of our work and the collaborative approach we have with our diverse range of stakeholders. Speakers focused on the importance of data collection and analysis for use of medical implant devices to ensure patient safety and also on the NJR’s support of orthopaedic research to constantly improve patient outcomes.

We were honoured to hear Professor Sir Stephen Powis, our guest keynote speaker in the programme of talks during the evening, describing the NJR as the ‘jewel in the crown of patient safety initiatives’, a clear endorsement of the importance NHSE attaches to the contribution the NJR makes to patient safety and a nod to our exemplar status in the development of the new surgical device and implant registry, which will facilitate the national reporting of activity relating to any surgical device or implant across both the NHS and independent health care sector.

Guests had been invited to be fully representative of the NJR’s wide range of stakeholders and included: patient organisations, orthopaedic surgeons and clinicians, data analysis statisticians and researchers, joint implant manufacturers, commissioners and regulators, as well as those from NHS England.
