A number of practices locally have raised concerns about a reduction in their QOF amounts. The issue has been raised with NHSE and the following message has been sent to all practices and CCGs.
“Some GPs have reported concerns with the recent QOF calculations and aspiration payments, which NHS England and NHS Digital are investigating as a matter of priority. So far, this has identified discrepancies with some prevalence calculations which could impact on some practices’ achievement and as a result on final payment and aspiration. NHS England and NHS Digital are working to resolve this as soon as possible to minimise any impact on practices.
NHS England wants to assure practices that they will all receive aspiration payments on time. In the meantime, if practices and local commissioners could temporarily stop any QOF approval processes and further information will be communicated in more detail as soon as we can.”
