GPC criticises 'misguided' plan for all-or-nothing diabetes QOF target

Comment

This is not an incentive - this is purely about saving costs . Nhs can't afford to provide good care to the epidemic of diabetes , If this was an incentive there would be extra funds. There is no extra funds being provided. Even the care processes are flawed. At present Qof pays about 40 pound per year per diabetic pts and that's only if the targets are met. It does not cover the cost of a nurse. What this will do is reduce the payment to possible 10 pounds per year per diabetic pt.
