QOF achievement dropped substantially in 2013/14

Comment

if ever there was a way of cutting costs (or is it called cost efficiency savings?!) then it is to reduce the number of QOF points available and make those points that are available impossible to achieve. Seemingly however high we, as GPs, are told to jump by the NHS bureaucrats that it will never be high enough. Is it any wonder that there is a true recruitment crisis across all medical areas of the NHS and younger doctors are, understandably, looking to greener pastures elsewhere. Thank goodness I'm near the finish line but I hope that there is enough in the treasury pot to pay me my pension!
