QOF guidance 2018/19
On the 20 March 2018, NHS Employers and the British Medical Association’s General Practitioner Committee (GPC) agreed a number of changes to Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) effective from 1 April 2018. These changes apply in England only.
The key changes are:
- The average practice list size (CPI) had risen from 7,732 as at 1 January 2017 to 8,096 at 1 January 2018.
- The value of a QOF point will increase by £8.06 or 4.7 per cent from £171.20 in 2017/18 to £179.26 in 2018/19.
- QOF indicators continue unchanged with the exception of a minor change to the clinical codes that make up the register for learning disabilities. As such, the indicator ID had changed from LD003 to LD004. See QOF FAQs for further details.
- No changes to thresholds for 2018/19.
