Part of our NHS work is monitored by the Quality and Outcomes Framework, known as QOF. This is a system of targets for standards of care and results achieved with payment according to results, that was introduced into general practice in the last few years. It concentrates on the major chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease and hypertension for which systematic care is suitable. It also covers aspects of practice administration and the collection of patient information.
We are proud to report that we have scored maximum achievable points in the clinical and administrative categories in the last few years and hope this reflects our general approach to high quality care. In 2014-15 we have achieved 96% of available points, as thresholds have risen! In 2015-16 we achieved 99.3%.
