ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the threat of the Great Britain Department of Health (DH) to enforce plans which include the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) overhaul. He mentions that case in point is to alter the time permitted for general practitioners (GPs) to complete yearly checks for indicators to cover about a third of QOF to 12 from 15 months. He states that the workload of GPs would inevitably raise in the spring to assure that patients with reviews due in March did not arrive in late.
