QOF - Asthma, COPD and heart failure domains are having an overhaul - 97 points recycled into 11 more clinically appropriate indicators. New indicator - non-diabetic hyperglycaemia (18 points). New QI modules to include learning disabilities and supporting early cancer diagnosis.
New essential/contractual services - 6-8 week post-natal check, weight management checks for obese patients.
PCN’s - enhancing the additional roles reimbursement scheme, service specifications for structured med review/medicines optimisation, enhanced health in care homes and supporting early cancer diagnosis.
Investment and Impact Fund (IIF) - rewards PCN’s for delivering objectives, operating in a similar way to QOF with 8 new indicators relating to seasonal flu, learning disability health checks, social prescribing referrals and prescribing.
The above are just a few of the changes. As usual we will be running our annual seminars to update, summarise and simplify the changes for you.
“This is the most informative annual course I attend - I always leave with a greater understanding of what I already do with a lots of extras thrown in. It was so worthwhile. The trainer was, as always, excellent”Jeanette, Practice Manager
