National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) Clinical Fellow


The National Hip Fracture Database (NHFD) seeks an enthusiastic individual to join its delivery team and support the development of innovations to drive up standards in hip fracture care.  

This is an exciting opportunity for two volunteers to join the team remotely, contributing expertise and ideas to the NHFD whilst simultaneously developing their own skills in diverse areas including big data management, clinical reporting, and academic research. 

The NHFD is a clinically led web-based audit of hip fracture care and secondary prevention in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It collects data on all patients admitted to hospital with hip and femoral fractures aiming to improve their care through auditing which is fed back to hospitals through targeted reports and online reporting. With over 3/4 million records, it is the most extensive hip fracture audit in the world.

The NHFD has shown how a national clinical audit can drive progressive improvement in quality and outcomes of care for people experiencing hip fracture, including a near halving of mortality for this patient group since its launch in 2007.

Data from 2020 will likely show significant effects of Covid-19 on the hip fracture population, who fall into the most at-risk groups of patients both in hospital and in the community. The NHFD must however continue improving care for these patients.

Analysing the impact of the pandemic alongside data in in other specific areas of interest, such as non-hip femoral fractures and peri-prosthetic femoral fractures, will be among the many opportunities available to the successful appointees.

 If you have the expertise, enthusiasm, and enquiring mind necessary to support pioneering developments in hip fracture care, we want to hear from you.

Applications should include:

1. Applicant’s up-to-date CV including details of previous involvement in quality improvement work, and of previous experience in handling, analysing, and presenting data.

2. A statement on your suitability for the NHFD fellowship role including what you think should be the key focus for that audit over the next decade (in no more than 400 words).

For more information including person specification and role responsibilities, please see the job description.

For an informal chat about the role, please contact NHFD orthopaedic clinical lead Dominic Inman: or NHFD orthogeriatric clinical lead Antony Johansen:


Closing Date: Sunday 7 March 2021

Interview Date: Friday 12 March 2021 (Afternoon)
