GP practice effectiveness, as measured by QOF
The Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) is a voluntary annual reward and incentive programme detailing GP practice achievement results. The QOF assesses surgeries across three domains. Each domain comprises a set of indicators against which practices score points depending on their level of performance. Achievement scores are primarily used to calculate the payment that a practice should receive based on the services delivered. Here we examine the QOF clinical domain.
