An Introduction to The Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) for New Primary Care Network Leaders

Updated: Mar 24


Introduction


If you are a new PCN Manager or Digital and Transformation Lead, depending on your experience, you may not have been directly involved in delivering on the QOF indicators before, but with QOF QI modules now part of the GP Contract, this is something you may have missed, as it's not written into the PCN DES.


It's my opinion that you do not need to know the detail of every QOF indicator, but it is important that you have an awareness of the work required, the income associated with the scheme and how this can help with workforce planning.


In this blog, we cover the following:


  1. When and why the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) was introduced

  2. An overview of the quality improvement QOF domains from 2019 -2023

  3. How a PCN plans to use their Health Inequalities Care Coordinator to support them in achieving their QOF indicators

  4. Six top tips on moving forwards when it comes to QOF

  5. Three questions for consideration to improve your network moving forward


To support this blog, the NHSE Quality and Outcomes Framework guidance for 2023/24 can be found here. Within the document, you will find a complete list of the indicators with an accompanying definition.


Let's jump in!
