Mr Ashworth regularly audits his practice to ensure high standards are maintained.

Patient related outcome scores (PROMS)

These are widely used to assess the patient's view of the outcome from surgery. Mr Ashworth uses the most commonly used PROMS, the Oxford hip and knee scores (OHS and OKS), to assess outcome from hip and knee replacement surgery. The maximum possible score is 48pts from the 12 questions asked.

Infection rate in hip and knee replacement

Mr Ashworth audits the infection rate of all hip and knee replacement operations in conjunction with the Torbay Hospital Microbiology department.

In the UK, around 0.5–1% of patients receiving total hip replacement subsequently develop deep prosthetic joint infection (PJI), a potentially serious and devastating complication.2 ,3

Mr Ashworth's deep infection rate for both hip and knee replacement operations has consistently been below 0.3%.
