NICE has begun the consultation process for the potential new indicators for the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF).
The Quality Outcomes Framework (QOF) is a voluntary incentive scheme for GP practices in the UK, rewarding them for how well they care for patients. The QOF contains groups of indicators, against which GP practices score points according to their level of achievement. The QOF gives an indication of the overall achievement of a GP practice through a points system. For further information please see this webpage: www.nice.org.uk/aboutnice/qof/qof.jsp
The consultation for the potential 20 new indicators will run until 5.00pm on Monday 6th February 2012. NICE would like to encourage patient and carer organisations, and members of the public, in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to comment.
