GMS Contract Quality Outcomes Framework 2021/22

The British Medical Association’s General Practitioner Committee (GPC) and NHS England have agreed to provide practice stability and support recovery. QOF for 2021/22 will be based on the indicator set already agreed for 2020/21, with very limited changes only. The reinstating of QOF in full will support the recovery of long-term condition management.

The letter dated 10 March 2021 “Update on Quality Outcomes Framework changes for 2021/22” etails the updates for 21/22.
