The Quality and Outcomes Framework has deeply divided UK general practitioners. I commend this book and applaud its determination to scrutinise every aspect of the Quality and Outcomes Framework - good and bad and in-between. - From the Foreword by Iona Heath General practice in the UK faces transformation following the introduction of the Quality & Outcomes Framework (QOF) a pay-for-performance scheme unprecedented in the NHS and the most comprehensive scheme of its kind in the world. Champions claim the QOF advances the quality of primary care; detractors fear the end of general practice as we know it. The introduction of the QOF provides a unique opportunity for research analysis and reflection. This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the impact of the QOF examining the claims and counter-claims in depth through the experience of those delivering QOF comparisons with other countries and analysis of the wealth of research evidence emerging. Assessments of the true impact of QOF will influence the development of health services in the UK and beyond. This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the future of general practice and primary care including health professionals trainers students MRCGP candidates and researchers managers and policy-makers and shapers.
