GPs told to continue working on retired QOF indicators to 'demonstrate good patient care'


QOF was always a voluntary service.Practices chose to collect Data on certain Disease registers and were then paid acording to which targets they reached.Checks could then be made according to the grade of evidence required.Once moved into Global Sum Equivalent ALL reporting requirements were removed.Practices would continue to provide good clinical care and clinical governance assurrance as to their efforts to continue to do so.THERE ARE NO REPORTING REQUIREMENTS FOR RETIRED INDICATORS.As a side issue how could practices persue these indicators without appropriate search engines anyway?
