  • A lot of the easy stuff has gone. (eg tsh checks)
    Some stupidity has gone (eg GPPAQ) but overall I suspect the workload will change only slightly as the majority remains.

    At least the QP nonsence has gone - for that I am grateful.

    It doesn't change my plans to retire at 60 (3years time) and sooner if necessary.

  • All told , I feel it's a move in the right direction
    Many of the worthless time consuming indicator targets are gone
    The diabetes indicators are largely unchanged which is a good thing.
    I am encouraged by the changes as it appears that GPs are being listened to .... at last

  • Theres lots of minefields ahead. I was disappointed that many objectives targets were sacrificed but woolly measures retained but I dont know what the long game is. Is it, that it will show that the QOF can be reduced without affecting QOF achievement, so that it can be withdrawn completely at some later date, or will they monitor the Thyroid domain, and after seeing quality plummet, hit us harder with more draconian QOF measures? - perplexed of GPland

  • Why not pay GP's sa decent wage and leave them to do what they do best?

    I wouldn't expect a cardiologist to be paid extra fro looking after my heart, which is what QOF is all about.

    What QOF is really about is the NHS not trusting doctors to what they are paid to do …
