Headline

GPs face tougher diabetes targets as NICE puts 'bundled' QOF indicator out for consultation

Comment

Can anyone explain to me the rationale behind this development? The QOF is effectively an incentive scheme to promote high quality clinical practice. To make the required parameters difficult to achieve acts as a disincentive for practices to invest the time and resources (staff, training, money) required to provide that high level of care. How perverse is it to design a disincentive scheme???
