NJR information governance manager


The Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) is an independent organisation led by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, The Royal College of Nursing and National Voices that commissions and manages NHS clinical work programmes on behalf of NHS England and other devolved nations. This includes the National Clinical Audit & Patient Outcome Programme (NCAPOP) which consists of over forty National Clinical Audits and clinical outcome review programmes.

The National Joint Registry of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man [NJR] collects data about joint replacement surgery [hip, knee, elbow, shoulder, ankles] in order to provide an early warning of issues relating to patient safety, improve the quality of outcomes and ensure cost effectiveness of joint replacement surgery. The NJR is the largest arthroplasty register and one of the most influential healthcare registries in the world with a significant international profile.

The NJR management team, based at HQIP, manages the registry’s work across its governance structure. We are now seeking to recruit to the post of NJR information governance manager to join the NJR team. This is a key position.

The Role
The NJR is a uniquely powerful resource that can support enquiry and demonstrate the value and impact of joint replacement surgery on patients. Demand for NJR data access is therefore high and while the registry’s aim is to make data widely available, this must be managed responsibly within an approved governance structure to ensure safe, effective and efficient data management. 

If you are seeking a new and exciting challenge to take on a highly responsible role with an internationally recognised clinical registry and have the relevant experience and skills, we would love to hear from you. We support flexible working and are based in the City of London with excellent transport links.

A key strategic objective of the NJR Steering Committee is to protect the NJR data set through effective and efficient data governance and information management. The post holder will be a key member of the NJR team, contributing to the achievement of an effective and responsive NJR leadership office.

Key requirements of this position are:

  • Expert management of decisions regarding disclosure of sensitive information, using in-depth knowledge to inform strategy within the NJR.
  • Providing leadership, advice and expertise to ensure data release protocols meet the reporting requirements of NJR and HQIP, and comply with all relevant legal and statutory requirements.

Key person specification requirements are:

  • Excellent interpersonal and relationship management skills.
  • Technical understanding and experience of application of the Data Protection Act and the Freedom of Information Act and other relevant legislation in this setting.
