West Middlesex University Hospital has been named as a National Joint Registry (NJR) Quality Data Provider for 2021/2022

24 August 2022

We are delighted to announce that West Middlesex University Hospital has been named as a National Joint Registry (NJR) Quality Data Provider for 2021/2022.

We are delighted to announce that West Middlesex University Hospital has been named as a National Joint Registry (NJR) Quality Data Provider for 2021/2022.

The NJR monitors the performance of hip, knee, ankle, elbow, and shoulder joint replacement operations to improve clinical outcomes, primarily for the benefit of patients, but also to support orthopaedic clinicians and industry manufacturers. 

The NJR Quality Data Provider scheme gives hospitals public recognition for achieving excellence in supporting patient safety standards through compliance with the mandatory NJR data submission quality audit process.

Dominic Conlin, Hospital Director at West Middlesex University Hospital, said: “The quality and safety of our services is our key priority and is something all our staff take very seriously.  We fully support the National Joint Registry’s work in facilitating improvement in clinical outcomes and governance for the benefit of joint replacement patients as it reflects our own ambitions to provide the best possible care; and we are delighted to be recognised as an ‘NJR Quality Data Provider’. The team deserve an enormous amount of credit for their work day in, day out to meet and demonstrate these standards and we are very proud of them”

Mr Tim Wilton, National Joint Registry Medical Director, said: “Congratulations to colleagues at West Middlesex University Hospital. The Quality Data Provider Award demonstrates the high standards being met towards ensuring compliance with the NJR and is often a reflection of strong departmental efforts to achieve such status.

Registry data provides an important source of evidence for regulators, such as the Care Quality Commission, to inform their judgements about services, as well as being a fundamental driver to inform improved quality of care for patients.”
