Nuffield Health achieves GOLD

The National Joint Registry (NJR) has given a ‘Gold’ Quality Data Provider award to Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital, part of the wider UK’s largest healthcare charity, for its commitment to high quality care and patient safety reporting in orthopaedics surgery.

The National Joint Registry monitors the performance of hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder joint replacement procedures to improve clinical outcomes for the benefit of patients, but also to support and give performance feedback to orthopaedic clinicians and industry manufacturers.

The ‘NJR Quality Data Provider’ certificate scheme is available to NHS and independent sector hospitals in England and Wales. It was introduced to offer hospitals a blueprint for reaching high quality standards relating to patient safety and to reward orthopaedic surgery services who have met registry targets. The ‘Gold’ awards mean that Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital has met a 100% NJR target for sharing data to improve clinical outcomes for the benefit of patients.

Louise Dennington, Nuffield Health’s Director of Clinical Services, says: “This is a fantastic achievement for our hospital team, rewarding our hard-working clinicians and non-clinical administrative staff that inputted many clinical records for the National Joint Registry.
“People who choose to have their joint care with a Nuffield Health hospital benefit from an experienced and expert clinical team, as recognised by the National Joint Registry, but also receive connected physiotherapy and specialist rehabilitation care. We are also investing in new technologies to support clinical decision-making, with the clear end-goal of improving clinical outcomes for the benefit of more people in local communities.”
