NICE has said that its QOF review committee will undertake a rolling review programme with every indicator being assessed during the course of a three- to four-year cycle.
An online facility launched this week allows GPs and other stakeholders to comment on existing indicators and suggest new ones for inclusion in the QOF.
Only four of the 17 potential new indicators assessed for inclusion in the 2010/11 framework were accepted. Many were rejected for lack of evidence about their cost-effectiveness.
NICE has also revealed that an article on the rationale for retiring indicators has been submitted to a peer-reviewed journal.
A spokesman for NICE told GP that once the article was published further information about why indicators had been suggested for retirement would be uploaded to its website.
