 Clinical Outcomes Publication


This page is the NJR's main hub of information about the plans for surgeon and hospital outcomes publication each year. We will shortly be updating this with details for publication of data for 2020.

The National Joint Registry continues to work closely with lead specialist society, the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA), alongside other specialist orthopaedic societies to agree the plan for publication and ensure that the development of the surgeon profiles on the NJR website are accurately representing outcomes, for the benefit of patients and the wider public. 

All orthopaedic surgeons who carried out a hip/knee/ankle/elbow/shoulder joint replacement procedure in any hospital during the most recent three financial years are included for publication on the site. 

The outcome results for 2019 were published at the start of 2020 and are available here:

Updating Surgeon Profile Information

Clinicians are encouraged to add/update their profile information prior to publication to identify any specialist areas of practice and membership(s) of professional bodies.

For any consultant wishing to see how this profile area displays, please visit and review the profile of Tim Wilton, NJR Medical Director.
