NHS Employers and the General Practitioners Committee (GPC) have agreed a number of changes to the quality and outcomes framework (QOF) effective from 1 April 2011.
A complete breakdown of all of the clinical and organisational domains with a full explanation of rationale behind each domain indicator is also available (PDF).
Action: Clinicians, and in particular general practitioners (GPs), should be aware of the changes. The Quality and Productivity indicators aimed at securing a more effective use of NHS resources will require careful consideration and planning.
