NJR Steering Committee

 

The National Joint Registry Steering Committee (NJRSC) was established in 2002 to oversee the strategic development and running of the NJR. It is an NHS England Committee of Experts. The NJRSC sets the strategic direction of the NJR, with the NJR Management Team managing the work programme approved by the NJRSC and sub-committees. The NJRSC is responsible for the overall NJR budget and approval of work, supported by appropriate business case(s), aligned to the NJR’s Strategic Plan. The NJR Executive Committee (NJREC) meets monthly and holds delegated authority for budget approval or adjustment where appropriate..

Mr Tim Wilton - NJR Medical Director, usually the Vice-Chairman is currently acting as interim Chairman; and was appointed on 1 January 2019. Tim is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon, a past President of the BOA, a member of the British Hip Society and of the European, International and British Knee Society.

The NJR Steering Committee ensures:

  • That the NJR budget is effectively managed/monitored
  • That outcomes achieved by brand of prostheses, hospital and surgeon are monitored and where these fall below expected performance are highlighted to enable prompt investigation and follow-up by relevant implant suppliers, regulators, commissioners and providers of orthopaedic care
  • That appropriate stakeholders, for example patients, clinicians, providers and commissioners of healthcare, regulators and implant suppliers, are involved in and consulted on the work of the National Joint Registry as appropriate and are informed of the outcomes achieved in joint replacement surgery
  • That patient awareness of joint replacement outcomes is enhanced to better inform patient choice and patient’s quality of experience through engagement with patients, patient organisations and providers of care
  • That appropriate governance and monitoring arrangements are in place to facilitate the use of NJR data to support and enable related research.
