Practices could ditch QOF to offer longer appointment times under draft CCG plans


So, can someone tell me what components of clinical care and review surgeries are going to stop performing if QoF payments are dropped? Most would be included in NICE guidance and are now generally accepted as appropriate standards of care - stop doing them and be damned. Allowing your CCG to come up with new schemes and dropping QoF will just result in additional work for no additional resources. Remember CCGs are membership organisations, agitate for a vote of no confidence and get rid of the GPs supporting such changes.
