The college’s position is set out in its response to the DoH’s consultation on reforming the way indicators in the quality framework (QOF) are reviewed.
It acknowledged that there is, as yet, no evidence to indicate that it is safe and appropriate to remove incentives when there has been a consistent plateauing of achievement. However, it said it welcomed the proposed approach ‘on the whole’.
Clear and transparent rules would need to be developed to guide the removal of indicators, it said. ‘It is also important to continue to monitor achievement once an indicator has been removed in case achievement falls and there is a need to reconsider’.
The consultation closed this week.
