QOF changes are extra work by stealth
What does Dr Michael Dixon mean when he talks about 'future versions' of the QOF?
Isn't it about time we stopped the constant movement of the QOF's goalposts?
At the start, the QOF was sensible bread-and-butter stuff, which most of us saw the merit of, and which benefited patient care. It has become degraded by more and more additions of dubious worth, scattered with unseemly attempts by the Department of Health to make aspects so difficult to achieve that it saves the Government a bit of cash.
Remember the concept of no extra work without extra money? These changes to the QOF are achieving the opposite by stealth.
