Exception reporting data will be included in QMAS reports from October, the Department of Health has announced.

The change will enable PCTs to compare the percentage levels of exception reporting for each disease area in individual practices against other practices in the PCT and the national average.

Data will be displayed as the number of exceptions for each indicator and the percentage exception rate for each clinical domain.

Dr Paul Cundy, chair of the GPC IT sub-committee, said: 'Lots of PCT financial directors will look at that data but they will be enlightened. This shows how open we are willing to be'.

QMAS reports will also for the first time display raw disease prevalence data at practice, PCT and national levels.
