Updated on Monday, 18 April 2016, 1228 views

The 2016-17 QOF guidance has been published on the NHS Employers webpage (http://www.nhsemployers.org/your-workforce/primary-care-contacts/general-medical-services/quality-and-outcomes-framework) .

The BMA webpage (http://www.bma.org.uk/support-at-work/contracts/gp-contracts-and-funding/independent-contractors/qof-guidance) has been updated to reflect the minor amendments made to QOF for 2016-17, which are:

An adjustment to the value of a QOF point taking account of population growth and relative changes in practice list size from 1 January 2015 to 1 January 2016. The national average list size as of 1 January 2016 is 7460 and the value of a QOF point for 2016/17 will be £165.18

You will also be aware that as part of the negotiations for the 2017-18 contract, NHS Employers and GPC have agreed to explore ending QOF in its entirety.
