The National Bariatric Surgery Register is a comprehensive, prospective, nationwide analysis of outcomes from bariatric surgery in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It contains pooled national outcome data for bariatric and metabolic surgery in the United Kingdom.
The full Third NBSR report will be released in early 2019. This will involve an updated data set – adding patient identifiers (NHS numbers), HbA1c and EQ5D quality of life measurements – which will help with making outcomes more patient-c
entred (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.
