Criteria for having a hip or a knee replacement on the NHS are being looked at – have your say


A clinically-led programme called London Choosing Wisely is underway to develop London widee policies for eight treatment areas. The programme aims to ensure patients across London have consistent access to treatment that improves their health, based on the latest available evidence.

Two of the procedures being reviewed currently are primary hip replacement and knee replacement. As part of the review, London Choosing Wisely has entered a testing phase. During this stage of development, they want to hear what you think.
