About the NJR
The National Joint Registry (NJR) of England and Wales was established in 2002. Its purpose is to define, improve and maintain the quality of care of individuals receiving hip, knee and ankle joint replacement surgery across the NHS and independent healthcare sector. Data collection began in April 2003 and the registry now holds over 1 million records and more records about certain procedure types than any other registry in the world. As a result of the increasing volume and quality of data it is possible to make accurate analysis available to all stakeholders and contribute significantly to good practice and patient safety.
