Quality and Outcomes Framework guidance

Quality and Outcomes Framework guidance

This is the third revision of the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF), which was introduced as part of the new GMS contract in 2004.

Revisions to the QOF were made in 2006 and 2008 and, following a review of the evidence by the QOF expert panel, a third revision has taken place, to commence from 1 April 2009.

This includes a re-allocation of points to heart failure, chronic kidney disease, sexual health, anxiety & depression, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hypertension and diabetes.
