Surgeon and Hospital
The NJR Surgeon and Hospital Profile, published on the Surgeon and Hospital Outcomes website, enables patients, their friends, family and carers to view surgeon and hospital specific data and to make comparisons between hospitals. This service is intended to enable patients to find useful information to empower them to make informed decisions about their care and their surgery.
We continue to work closely with lead specialty body the British Orthopaedic Association (BOA), alongside other specialist orthopaedic societies to agree the plan for publication and ensure that the development of the surgeon and hospital profiles on the NJR website https://surgeonprofile.njrcentre.org.uk/ accurately represents outcomes, for the benefit of patients, their carers and the wider public.
All consultant orthopaedic surgeons in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, and Guernsey who have carried out at least one hip/knee/ankle/elbow/shoulder joint replacement procedure as ‘Consultant in Charge’ in any hospital in the above geographic areas during the most recent financial year, ie. from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023, will be included for publication, unless there is an agreed reason that their data should be withheld.
The outcome results FY2022/23 will be published on 17 January 2024
Changes for FY21/22 Surgeon and Hospital outcomes website this year include:
The only change for surgeons is that the outlier analysis this publication runs from May to May (in 5 and 10-year periods) rather than August to August, ie. the time-frame it has been in previous years. This is due to the introduction of MDSv8 in June 2023.
Updating Surgeon Profile Information
Consultants are encouraged to add/update their profile information prior to publication to identify any specialist areas of practice and membership(s) of professional bodies. They can do this by logging into NJR Connect – Data Services, hovering over their name on the top right of the screen and clicking on ‘Edit profile’. From there, they can select the ‘Surgeon’ tab to update their specialties and society memberships, and the select the ‘Person’ tab to upload their photo if they wish to do so.
For any consultant wishing to see how this profile area displays, please visit https://surgeonprofile.njrcentre.org.uk and search to review the profile of Timothy Wilton, NJR Medical Director.
