Spire Leicester Hospital is celebrating after receiving a top award from health watchdogs the National Joint Registry (NJR).
The award is in recognition of high standards of patient safety achieved in orthopaedic surgery on hips, knees, ankles, elbows and shoulders.
Receiving the certificate Hospital Director Douglas Pattisson said, “Improving patient safety is of the utmost importance and something we all take very seriously so we are very proud that our efforts have been recognised.
“We have now been named as a NJR Quality Data Provider which demonstrates we are collecting the most complete and accurate information possible which helps the NJR make many of their decisions regarding quality of care and patient safety as well as overall cost effectiveness of joint replacement surgery.”
The NJR Medical Director Martyn Poster added, “It is clear that, for surgeons and patients alike, the necessity for quality data is an absolute requirement. This award demonstrates the high standards being met by Spire Leicester Hospital.”
