Welcome to NJR Clinician Feedback

NJR Clinician Feedback is a resource available to all orthopaedic surgeons in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Isle of Man who undertake hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder replacement surgery and are registered with the National Joint Registry (NJR). It is delivered by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership as part of the NJR programme.

 

NJR Clinician Feedback is designed to provide orthopaedic surgeons with data and information relating to the care that has been delivered both by them and on their behalf and it enables an analysis of data within the wider context of hospital, sector (NHS and Independent Healthcare), and national benchmarks. It also provides a means of plotting data within a statistical control chart (funnel plot) enabling surgeons to view trends apparent from the data held by the NJR.

 


Data updates

The service is regularly updated and data are available for the following time periods:  

 

  • Volumetric data - April 2003 to June 2017
  • Funnel plot data - April 2003 to March 2017

 

Recent Changes and Additions:

 

Please be aware that the website has undergone a change to look and feel and volumetric data on ankle, elbow and shoulder is now available.

 

 

Implant pricing EMBED Reports:   These surgeon level price benchmarking reports are available to surgeons through Clinician Feedback, where the NHS Trust has paid NJR subscription for the current financial year.  The service provides analysis of trust implant costs, and provides comparison to national benchmarks.  
 
Surgeon Primary Procedure Report:   enables download of all primary procedures and the endpoint for each, i.e. viable, revised, or patient deceased.  It can be filtered by joint type, procedure type, patient case-mix, endpoint, and time. It can be viewed either on screen or downloaded as a pdf file or spreadsheet.  The spreadsheet provides the most detailed data including, for example, details of what was revised, the indications for revision, and (for all procedures) the time from the primary procedure to the first change in endpoint. Where a procedure has been revised by another surgeon, the surgeon’s name and hospital are now included in the report.
 
Note:  the report does not necessarily provide the 'current' end state but the first change since the primary took place.  For example, if a patient has died after the revision of a primary procedure, the end state will be reported as 'Revised', not 'Deceased'.

 

Surgeon Revision Procedure Report:   enables download of all revision procedures and the endpoint for each, i.e. viable, revised, or patient deceased.  The report can be filtered by joint type, procedure type, patient case mix, endpoint, and time. It can be viewed either on screen or downloaded as a pdf file or spreadsheet.  Where a procedure has been revised by another surgeon, the surgeon’s name and hospital are now included in the report.

 

Note: the report does not necessarily provide the 'current' end state but the first change since the revision took place.  For example, if a patient has died after the second revision procedure, the end state will be reported as 'Revised', not 'Deceased'.

 

If you have any queries about the reports or wish to make suggestions about how they could be improved, please do not hesitate to contact either the NJR Centre directly or your local Regional Coordinator.
