Reminder of PROMs Data Requirement
23 May 2016

Hub customers are reminded that for 2016/17 and beyond - pending the outcome of a review of the national Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROM) - it remains a NHS Standard Contract requirement for all providers of NHS-funded hip replacements, knee replacements, varicose vein surgery and groin hernia procedures to collect and submit PROMs data to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).

As part of the contracts between CCGs and independent or NHS providers, it has been a requirement that providers must use the Patient Questionnaire Framework (PQF) to procure collection of PROMS data from an accredited supplier which complies with Health and Social Care Information Centre requirements.

The PQF is due to expire on 21st June 2016. However, contracts, or contract extensions, for the collection of PROMs data after this date, can still be awarded under the terms of the existing framework provided that the contract is awarded before the framework expires.
