QOF should be scrapped under 'new deal' for GPs, says RCGP

Comment

Clearly the government and NHS England want and need the 5Y forward view stuff to happen. I expect they will negotiate locally on QOF and the whole contract, trying to offer a carrot for innovation. Everything is up for negotiation. Unfortunately the appetite for change may be from those whom are struggling the most and need the help. They don't have the resources to stand still, let alone redesign the NHS on a local level. I think there is a really positive shift away from privatising parts of the NHS here, but new organisations, the PACS, MCPs are going to take some years to grow.
