Surgeon pre-view period notification
31 October 2016
The NJR is continuing to prepare and implement the 2016/17 round of orthopaedic clinical outcomes publication (COP) – an ongoing part of NHS England’s transparency agenda.
SURGEON PRE-VIEW PERIOD
The COP data has now been processed for pre-view prior to publication. The data periods covered are:
- for clinical activity up to 30 September 2016
- for standardised mortality ratio up to 31 July 2016
Surgeons' public-facing profile and data is now available to pre-view through NJR Clinician Feedback ►
The pre-view period will be open from Monday 31 October 10.30am until Sunday 13 November 11:59pm.
Are you in scope for publication?
NHS England procedures
Any Consultant surgeon who has carried out at least one NHS-funded procedure in England between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2016 is automatically included for publication.
Therefore, take up this opportunity to view the data in advance of its launch, as it will appear in the public domain.
Non-NHS England procedures
Consultant surgeons whose current practice is only in Wales, Northern Ireland or the private sector are not automatically included but may choose to opt-in to their data being published. Surgeons who wish to opt-in can do so through the NJR Clinician Feedback system.
We would encourage all Consultant surgeons to opt-in to the publication of their data.
Surgeon profile and additional information
Additionally, there is opportunity at this time to add additional, voluntary details including a photo, specialist areas and professional membership(s).
When will my data be published?
NHS Choices, MyNHS and NJR Surgeon and Hospital Profile website data are expected to go live on Thursday 5 January 2017 – importantly with the same indicators being reported on as last year.
Therefore, please do take up this opportunity to review all the data recorded for your practice and participate in wider NJR data quality initiatives that have been implemented in your organisation.
