Nearly half of GPs think it is time to get rid of the QOF


Anyway one reason that the government introduced QOF was that it wanted proof GPs were working hard enough to merit their salary and weren’t down at the golf course every minute of the day (not that I play golf). QOF now seems outdated with all the other expectations imposed on us by both patients and beaurocracy. How our salary would be maintained if and when QOF goes is quite another matter although Scotland has ditched QOF but at the expense of rural practices being disadvantaged. Time for a revolution?
