NDHT has been recognised as a quality data provider by the National Joint Registry for the third year running. Congratulations to the theatres, pre-op and clinical audit teams for their excellent work.
The Department of Health set up the National Joint Registry (NJR) in 2002 to collect information on all hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder replacement operations. The registry supports patient safety and monitors the effectiveness of treatments. This helps improve clinical standards and benefits patients, clinicians and the orthopaedic sector as a whole.
To achieve the award, hospitals are required to meet ambitious targets in terms of both quality and quantity of data.
