Notices for Surgeons:

Surgeon Level Report 2019

In 2019 the NJR provided a new Surgeon Level Report (SLR) for all surgeons who are 'associate specialist'. To qualify for the report, a surgeon had to have performed at least five combined hip and knee procedures or one ankle, elbow or shoulder procedure during the previous year. It is possible that some surgeons received this report in addition to a Consultant Level Report and this could have been for one of the following two reasons:

  • If during the past year you have a new consultant level position, you will have procedures linked to you as both a consultant and an associate specialist.

  • If there has been a data entry error and procedures have been attributed to you at the wrong grade. In this case, you will need to contact your Regional Coordinator to update the necessary NJR records.

    Push Notifications
    More recently introduced functionality will enable quarterly ‘push notifications’ to consultants, alerting them through email to the presence of newly linked events for their patients within the NJR data and facilitate their checking and validation of this data.

    This capability notifies surgeons via email of each of their attributable linked revisions and 90-day mortality events, providing a secure link for them to click through to log-in to NJR Clinician Feedback to review and requires surgeons to acknowledge each attributable revision and 90-day mortality event. It also notifies surgeons via email the existence of new Consultant Level Reports and sends reminder prompt emails to those who have not recorded their declaration against their annual Consultant Level Report. 

    The benefits of this more regular notification are that: 

  • data will be presented back to surgeons on a case-by-case basis enabling more frequent alerts for timely validation.
  • the validation by clinicians of key data items such as linked revisions and 90 day mortality is strengthened, providing a more timely mechanism for surgeons to review each linked event and resolve any ‘incorrectly attributable’ events
  • the process is automated to remind surgeons of the need to record consultant declaration at the time of the recorded appraisal date.
  • there is also an automated reminder to support surgeons in completion of their consultant declaration.

In order to benefit from this new functionality please go to Clinician Feedback ( and enter your current email address. If you have previously entered an email address please ensure that it is kept up-to-date.

Component Information

If a surgeon is planning to undertake a revision of either a primary or a revision joint arthroplasty and wishes to know what components were implanted in the previous procedure, they should contact the NJR Centre using the contact details below.  This assumes that the revising surgeon is different to the surgeon who undertook the previous procedure and cannot, therefore, access the information via NJR Clinician Feedback.

When contacting the NJR Centre, you should state that you require information about implants used in a patient's previous joint replacement procedure and provide an NHSMail email address through which you can be contacted.  You should NOT provide patient details at this stage.

Using the NHSMail address provided, one of the NJR Data team staff will contact you for details of the patient and once these have been provided and the patient has been positively identified, details of the components implanted during the previous surgery will be identified.

NJR's Service Centre can be contacted by either email or phone:  Tel: 0845 345 9991(Monday to Friday).
