Patient Reported Outcome Measures

What is PROMs or Q-PROMs?

Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) are condition-specific questionnaires that measure the severity of the condition from the perspective of the patient.

All patients having the following agreed procedures (below) will be asked to complete a Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) questionnaire before and after their procedure.  This questionnaire asks patients for perspective of their health and quality of life before they have an operation and after their operation. This will help us measure and improve the quality of the treatment and care received.

PROMs procedures are:


  • Hip, Knee or Shoulder replacement
  • Carpal tunnel release


  • Trans-urethral resection of the prostate(TURP)

Ear, Nose, Throat:

  • Nasal Septoplasty

 The Q-PROMs or Cosmetic procedures are:

  • Abdominoplasty
  • Augmentation mammoplasty (Including reduction)
  • Blepharoplasty
  • Facelift
  • Liposuction
  • Rhinoplasty

How will this take place?

Before your procedure, the bookings team will send you the PROMs questionnaire and information leaflet.  This will take no more than a few minutes to complete. Once you have completed the questionnaire, please bring it with you to any pre-admission clinic appointment or give it to your admitting Nurse when you come in for your surgery.

The questionnaire will ask you for a few personal details and contains a short health assessment.  Your personal details will be used to send you related follow up questionnaires in the future.

The completed PROMs data will be collated independently and used to produce statistics about the quality of the hospital’s healthcare services.  This statistical information will be sent to the hospital for submission to The Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) which is an independent, government-mandated source of information about private healthcare, working to empower patients to make better-informed choices of care provider.
