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

Comment

QOF focussed the mind. The problem is 12 month target means you have only 10 months to do the work (realistically). Also, ridiculous demands by CCGs who are supposed to represent GPs. LESs and other contracts' paperwork take GPs away from the real work, and the need to prove the work is done. How do we find a sensible way of assessing excellence in GP? And, for that matter, teachers and other public sector workers. Suffocation by the tyranny of information.
