Experts warn of 'troubling' cuts to QOF mental health indicators


There is a fundamental problem with the QUOF system in that it is supposed to represent " quality elements" and yet practices have become dependant on it for such a large amount of core funding. The removal of indicator should provoke a removal of activity , if only so every NHS manager who has ever said " your paid to do it, it's in quof" has to comission the service at a realistic price. If we continue the " we can't let the patients down" mentality we let our colleagues down. Fair and adequate funding for GP primary care please.
