Doubts over abolition of QOF as BMA continues to negotiate indicators

Comment

I think there is an argument here where certain specific parameters like HBA1c not reaching target(s) , money is not provided if QOF is to stay in this fashion . The other side of the coin , to me , in fact , is why a practice cannot reach the targets. Then , it may even paradoxically mean the practice needs more help in resources(money , manpower, expertise and time ). A reward/penalty system hence does not necessarily provide the solution(s). I fancy a ballot for a vote of whether QOF should be completely abolished .
