Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) Patient Leaflet

Patient Reported Outcome Measures, sometimes called 'PROMs', are questionnaires that ask patients about their health before and after an operation. They help to measure the results or outcome of the operation from the patient's point of view.

All NHS patients, wherever they are treated, who are undergoing hip replacement, knee replacement, varicose veins or groin hernia surgery are being invited to fill in these PROMs questionnaires.

The purpose of the questionnaires is to collect information about the quality of healthcare services. The information
collected will be used to produce statistics about the quality of healthcare services offered by different healthcare providers (hospitals) across the NHS.

These statistics will be used to measure and improve the quality of healthcare services.
