Detail

The collection and reporting of PROMs is a key priority as set out in the Government’s July 2010 White Paper, Equity and excellence: Liberating the NHS where the commitment was made to ‘extend patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) across the NHS wherever practicable”. The NHS Outcomes Framework 2012/13 identifies PROMs as a key source of information about the outcomes of planned procedures and they will form a core part of Quality Accounts for 2012/13.

It will remain a standard contract requirement for all providers of NHS funded hip replacement, knee replacement, varicose vein surgery and groin hernia repair procedures to collect and report PROMs data for 2012/13 and beyond.   This data collection has also been approved by the review of central returns steering committee.
