GPC agrees to increase QOF points for dementia care planning

Comment

Care planning is of zero clinical value, it's just a buzz word. It certainly does not improve care of people with dementia. There is no outcome data for it. Making it easier for patients to access services is for more important, eg patient or their carers being allowed to self refer to dieticians, or too receive funding from councils to live as independant lives as possible.
