Please click here to download the new QOF guidance for 2013/14, detailing all changes enforced as part of the Government’s GP contract imposition. As previously notified, all points for the organisation domains have been removed and redistributed into extra workload for a new rheumatoid arthritis domain, higher targets and raised thresholds. Clearly you will want to carefullyconsider this document in your practices in order to come to a decision whichof the new work, much of it likely to be unachievable, you feel it makes sense to pursue, or indeed which you feel you have the capacity to take on whilst maintaining safe essential services to your patients.
The GPC is intending to issue further advice for practicesimminently on possible approached to the funding cuts and increasing workload following the imposition. The revised Statement of Financial Entitlements is also expected to be published shortly and the LNC will forward both these documents on to you as soon as they are received.
