The National Bariatric Surgery Register is a comprehensive, prospective, nationwide analysis of outcomes from bariatric surgery in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It contains pclinical_audits_nbsrooled national outcome data for bariatric and metabolic surgery in the United Kingdom.

The NBSR committee on behalf of all NHS England bariatric surgery provider hospitals published the Clinical Outcomes Publication for 2014/15 in March 2016 and took a data cut in August for the 2015/16 round.  The acronym COP now uses the word ‘Clinical’ instead of ‘Consultant’.

Developments for the NBSR include Version 2 which we hope to have going live early in 2017. This will involve an updated data set – adding patient identifiers (NHS numbers), HbA1c and EQ5D quality of life measurements – that will help with making outcomes more patient centred (which also fits with the HQIP mandate). We hope to get funding to develop this so that the NBSR can work even more positively for the image of bariatric surgery
