No 'gaming' as exceptions fall

Exception reporting in England has fallen in the last year, latest figures show.

The fall shows that GPs in England have been responsible in their use of exception reporting and are not 'gaming' the quality framework to make extra money.

The NHS Information Centre figures found that the overall rate of exception reporting for 2007/8 fell to 5.26 per cent from the 2006/7 level of 5.83 per cent.

The overall effective exception rate at individual practice level ranged from 0 per cent to 35.58 per cent.
