Department of Health and Social Care launches new consultation on the role of incentives schemes in general practice

The Department of Health and Social Care has launched a consultation on the role of incentives schemes in general practice, considering future opportunities for reform, with a focus on two main schemes:

  • Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF)
  • Investment and Impact Fund (IIF)

These schemes aim to enhance healthcare delivery and patient outcomes by incentivising continuous improvement in clinical care and public health delivery.

This consultation is divided into 3 sections:

  • feedback on the role and nature of any incentive scheme in general practice, with a focus on the current scope of the QOF and the IIF
  • comments on possible changes in scope of incentive schemes beyond clinical indicators
  • input on reducing the administrative burden associated with the schemes and enhancing the clinician’s experience of delivering it

The consultation can be accessed here and is open for twelve weeks, closing on 7th March 2024.

Please share with your networks and encourage further responses directly to the consultation team to ensure that all voices have an opportunity to be heard.
