A new temporary Enhanced Service was introduced in February 2017 to recognise work caused by historic issues with code mapping errors in the QRISK2 calculator in SystmOne. Practices have been provided with lists of patients potentially affected and clinical recommendations for identifying patients for call/recall and support reviews. Practices need to identify patients who may have been affected by the QRISK2 code mapping error and offer an up to date cardiovascular assessment where clinically appropriate, Where clinically indicated, patients should be invited for a consultation and offered appropriate follow up clinical interventions. Practices can claim £6.50 per affected patient.
Full details of the Enhanced Service and more background on the QRISK error are available here:
Claims need to be made by 31 May 2017 and payments will be made by Monday 31 July 2017. All claims are on the basis that the follow up work set out in the Enhanced Service is carried out by 31 September 2017.
