Spire Bushey Hospital has received an award from the National Joint Registry (NJR) having successfully completed a comprehensive data audit which ensures high standards in patient safety and quality of care are met.
The NJR monitors the performance of hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder joint replacement operations and collects high quality orthopaedic data in order to provide evidence to support patient safety and standards in quality of care for joint replacement surgery. The certificate scheme is designed to offer hospitals a blueprint for reaching standards relating to patient safety at all times.
Spire Bushey Hospital has become the private hospital of choice for knee replacements in London and the region. Across both 2016 and 2017*, more knee replacements were carried out at Spire Bushey than any other private London hospital.
Lisa Trybus, Hospital Director at Spire Bushey Hospital, said:
“Improving patient safety is of the utmost importance and something my whole team 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 and we’re delighted to be awarded as a ‘NJR Quality Data Provider’.”
National Joint Registry Medical Director, Mr Martyn Porter, said:
“Congratulations to colleagues at Spire Bushey Hospital. The Quality Data Provider award demonstrates the high standards being met towards ensuring compliance with the NJR and is often a strong reflection of a department effort to achieve such status.”
