Local scheme to replace the QOF 'a success'


Now the CCG has to employ additional staff to formulate local guidelines and to set targets; then the CCG has to conduct educational sessions to their local GPs to inform them about that years targets and why they have been chosen; then the CCG has to commission another agency to design templates that could be used in the electronic systems (in a CCG has surgeries that use different systems like EMIS, System One, Vision, etc - templates have to be designed for each of these systems); then CCG has to employ someone to address any issues arising from the use of templates. So the CCGs might decide to have their own targets which when once agreed, would probably run for 5yrs in a row by which time local priorities may have even changed or the targets may have lost their evidence of effectiveness. Very interesting future for General Practice indeed.
