QOF does not improve care and should be replaced, finds official review

Comment

We know whats coming next..... since QOF doesnt improve outcomes it will be dropped and so will the funding... Daily Mail will say ' paying doctors more to look after patients is of no benefit' - they will produce a figure stating how much more we've been paid but by the QOF system (As if its some generous get rich quick scheme- they won't mention how some practices couldn't survive without it) but how patients haven't benefitted at all, giving the impression we are greedy and incompetent, Tax Payers Alliance will state in response to this news story (After having dinner with the editors the night before in an overpriced London restaurant - on expenses) that the public they represent are 'outraged' by this 'lack of productivity' and only 'improved efficiency' driven through 'more competition' can improve things as our Lazy NHS doctors are obviously crap, so the voters want more involvement of private providers to come to the rescue as only privatisation is the solution... they won't mention how Virgin trains, for example, now receive more subsidy as a private concern than when it was a nationalised service..... nor mention how much money is being sucked out of the system via PFIs. The public will be brainwashed by the media into believing the spin.... job accomplished.
