Quality and Outcomes Framework for GP practices
The Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) is the annual reward and incentive programme detailing GP practice achievement results. QOF is a voluntary process for all surgeries in England and was introduced as part of the GP contract in 2004. QOF awards surgeries achievement points for:
-managing some of the most common chronic diseases e.g. asthma, diabetes
-how well the practice is organised
-how patients view their experience at the surgery
-the amount of extra services offered such as child health and maternity services
QOF gives an indication of the overall achievement of a surgery through a points system. Practices aim to deliver high quality care across a range of areas for which they score points. Put simply, the higher the score, the higher the financial reward for the practice. The final payment is adjusted to take account of surgery workload and the relative health of patients in their area.
Understanding the results
You can use this website to look up information on how well your local surgery achieved both this year and last year. All this information is now in the public domain.
The website provides, for the first time, easy access to comprehensive information on the pattern of the most common chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes and cancer. In terms of scale, the data for QOF is collected from over 8,400 GP practices with just over 53 million registered patients in England. QOF helps doctors caring for you to compare the delivery and quality of care currently provided against 2005’s achievement. The aim is to improve care standards by assessing and benchmarking quality of care
By providing this world-leading intelligence on the spread of illnesses such as diabetes, heart conditions and cancers, GPs and other health professionals can make improvements in managing these chronic diseases. This should in time lead to a reduction in avoidable hospital admissions.
