This information display shows whether this hospital is submitting all the data they should to the NJR (compliance), whether those records have corresponding patient details (patient consent) and whether the records have a valid NHS or national patient number, so that the NJR can measure how long implants last and look at other areas of surgical performance. The display also shows a result for data entry delay which indicates whether the hospital is submitting the data in a timely way. This is important so that the NJR can report an accurate and full picture of performance to hospitals and individual surgeons working there as well as to patients and the public.

   The green banding represents the expected range of performance for hospitals.
   The grey dotted line represents the national expected target.
   The black marker represents the hospital you have selected. This marker shows where this hospital’s performance sits in relation to the expected range and the national expected target.

It is important to note that the data displayed here is a snapshot in time of the relative performance of this hospital.

An example for (fictional) Trust C is shown below

The results for Hospital C show that for this 12-month period, the hospital submitted records for all of the operations they carried out. Hospitals are required to submit 100% of their eligible information to the National Joint Registry. For the records submitted, the results show that the hospital achieved patient consent in a high proportion of the operations they carried out. However, they did not record a valid national patient number for all of the records that received patient consent.

Lastly, the results show that the hospital is performing better than expected for the time taken to enter data into the NJR. Submitting information in a timely manner is important for patient safety and will help hospitals to maintain 100% compliance on an ongoing basis.
