2015/16 Achievement summaries at practice level

2015/16 Achievement summaries at practice level

Click on the links below for Excel Download Excel file tables summarising individual practice achievements in 2015/16 against the QOF as a whole and achievement against groups of QOF indicators. Achievement against individual indicators, and register/prevalence information is presented on separate pages.

Please note:

  • It is essential to take note of each practice's contract type when looking at their achievements. In particular, practices that do not have a standard GMS contract (those with section 2c or 17c contract types) may use only some of the QOF indicators, as part of their own, individualised, quality framework. Where this is the case, recorded achievement under QOF may appear relatively low, but this should not be taken to mean that such practices are not providing a high level of service to their patients.
  • For some practices it may be impossible to achieve all the points available in the framework. For example, some of the clinical indicators relate to very specific subgroups of patients, and if the practice does not have any patients in that particular subgroup, they cannot score any points against the relevant indicator(s). This is more likely to happen in practices with small list sizes.
  • Data are shown for those practices whose points and payments were signed off (or finalised prior to sign-off) at 28 June 2016. Additionally, it is possible that further small adjustments may be made for practices whose data have been signed off.
