The NAHR is a national registry of operations on, or around the hip other than hip replacements and operations carried as a consequence of acute trauma to the hip.

The results of hip replacements (hip arthroplasties) in England and Wales are already captured on the National Joint Registry (NJR). To improve further the quality of hip surgery in the United Kingdom, the British Hip Society has set up the Non Arthroplasty Hip Registry (NAHR) to monitor the outcome for patients of all other types of operations on the hip.

Cases from both the NHS and the independent health care sectors are included in this register, the success of which depends on gathering information on as many people having these operations as possible.

Data Entry Form


Who enters the data?

Surgeons carrying out this type of surgery will enter data if a patient gives their consent for the information to be recorded. Patients will then be contacted for information about their progress, ideally by e-mail, at regular intervals after the operation.

Search Our NAHR Members

This facility allows you to search our database of NAHR Members and hospitals within the UK in order to discover whether they are currently contributing to our association.

What happens to a patient's data?

Data collected via the NAHR may be used to establish the success of surgery and for medical research, however this data will be anonymised so that it will not be possible to identify individual patients.

Amplitude is the data processor and the BHS is the data controller. Consent will be required from patients for their data to be entered on the NAHR. The system is fully compliant with the Data Protection Act.

What information will be published from the NAHR?

Key Reports from NAHR in the future will include the following:
• Outcomes by operation and/or diagnosis
• Further surgery based on selected procedure and/or diagnosis
• Outcome by Patient Reported Outcome Scores (PROMS data)


Will Patients Benefit?

The data will be used to bring direct benefits to patients by:

  • Improving patient awareness of the outcomes of operations on the hip since results will be available in the public domain
  • Comparing the success rates of different operations on the hip
  • Helping to identify which patients would benefit from a specific surgical technique
  • Identifying which surgical procedure is most likely to bring benefit for a specific diagnosis

Who else will benefit?

The NAHR data will bring additional long-term benefits to surgeons and hospitals by:

  • Providing feedback to orthopaedic surgeons to define which patients will benefit from surgery and what details of the operative procedure will define a good result. The surgeon will have validated outcome data available to them.
  • Identifying patients who are likely to benefit from a particular procedure
  • Promoting open publication of outcomes following surgery
