NRAS welcomes review of Orthopaedics in England

NRAS welcomes new report ‘Getting it Right First Time’ by the British Orthopaedic Association, which reviews current practices and outcomes of NHS hospitals providing adult orthopaedic surgery in England.

The British Orthopaedic Association (BOA), the body that represents the professional interests of orthopaedic surgeons across the UK, has today published a report reviewing current practices and outcomes of NHS hospitals providing orthopaedic surgery in England, to identify and quantify variation in clinical outcomes, processes, patient experience, patient pathways, network arrangements, financial impacts and waiting times.

The report Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) builds on Professor Tim Briggs’ original research in 2012 which suggested ways in which extensive savings and improvements could be made in elective orthopaedics by hospitals to ensure continuing high quality care and access for patients within the financial constraints of the NHS.
