Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon, Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust

Jim Newman was appointed a consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedics at Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust in 2010. In the same year he became a consultant knee surgeon with Nuffield Health and Spire Healthcare Group.

Now focussing purely on knee problems, Jim treats a wide range of conditions including ACL reconstruction, partial knee replacements, total knee replacements, osteotomy, and cartilage regeneration.

Jim helped develop a gold standard knee service for the Mid Yorkshire area, implementing a trust-wide enhanced recovery programme. This led to his appointment as Lead Surgeon for Elective Orthopaedic surgery at the trust in 2012.

During his tenure Jim set up the hugely successful Elective Orthopaedic Unit, which enjoyed the highest friends and family scores in the trust. He also led a process of implant rationalisation for hip and knee replacements, using only the implants that had the best track record on the National Joint Registry and saving the NHS half a million pounds in the process.

In February 2018 Jim became Head of Clinical Service for Trauma and Orthopaedics at the Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust.

In this role, Jim is leading the trust’s quality improvement plans, business case planning, financial oversight and response to adverse incidence and near miss events. He is also set to introduce a Virtual Fracture Clinic.

Jim is married with two children. Away from work, he is a keen runner and mountain biker – a pastime which has seen him become a ‘go to’ knee surgeon for members of the cycling community
