GPs meeting QOF targets

  • Comment

Most GPs in England are meeting targets for quality and providing improved care for patients, figures published today demonstrate.

The BMA analysed four areas of primary care - clinical, organisational, patient experience and additional services - which have been set out in the Quality and Outcomes Framework

96.8% of all targets were met by GPs and their support team – a 1.3% increase on last year. The results demonstrate that more general practitioners are meeting the aims of the GP contract, which was established in 2004.

Dr Richard Vautrey, Deputy Chairman of the BMA’s GP committee, said the figures point to a better service, and ultimately better health, for patients.

He was also keen to stress that: ‘patients are getting a very high standard of treatment no matter where they live and the gap between those in the most and least deprived areas is narrowing year on year.’
