QOF indicators for 2013-14

NICE is currently consulting on the potential new QOF indicators for 2013-14. These are the indicators that could be put forward to the negotiators in the summer for consideration of the following year's contract. There is certainly no guarantee that they would go forward. This year rather fewer than half of the suggestions in the menu actually made it into practice.

As this is a consultation then the more responses the better. My response to the QOF consultation is on the web in the interests of openness. In generally the aims seem laudable although there are some significant practical problems that may arise with the implementation of these indicators. Some clearly need more work but your view may differ and I would encourage you to put them forwards.

Great work Gavin.
But NHS reforms, surely privatisation in all but name . We going down the same route as the US healthcare system - and its happening too fast too soon.
