 Clinical Outcomes Publication

Following the initiation of the consultant activity and outcomes publication in 2013, NHS England and the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) have confirmed an ongoing requirement for this as part of the delivery of the NHS openness and transparency agenda. This page is the NJR's main hub of information about the plans for orthopaedic publication each year.

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 website are appropriate and robust for the benefit of patients and the wider public. All orthopaedic surgeons who have carried out a hip/knee/ankle/elbow/shoulder joint replacement procedure in any hospital during the latest three financial years, 1st April 2016 to 31st March 2019, are included for publication.

 The outcome results for 2019 have been published and are available here:  https://surgeonprofile.njrcentre.org.uk/
