Health Gain for Knee Replacements
The national PROMs programme collects data for NHS funded activity only, however patients can be treated at either NHS or independent sector organisations. This may be due to patient choice or subcontracting arrangements between organisations.
The proportion of providers with a reported organisational average health gain above the national average is higher for independent providers than providers in the NHS for primary knee replacement procedures.
58.6% of independent organisations were above the national average compared to 43.7% of NHS organisations. Independent organisations account for 46.8% of all organisations with 30 or more modelled records.
