Quality and Outcomes Framework for 2012/13


05 / 03 / 2012

The Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) rewards practices for the provision of 'quality care' and helps to standardise improvements in the delivery of clinical care. Practice participation in QOF is voluntary but most practices on General Medical Services (GMS) contracts, as well as many on Personal Medical Services (PMS) contracts, take part in QOF. It was introduced as part of the new GMS contract in 2004.

This document outlines changes in relation to QOF payments under the GMS contract for 2012/13 and replaces all guidance issued in previous years. The content of this document reflects the provisions of Annex D of the Statement of Financial Entitlements Directions and forms part of the General Medical Services (GMS) Contract for 2012/13.
