Paper on the Quality and Outcomes Framework

For any medics or managers who this subject may be of interest to, a shortened version of my undergraduate dissertation on the Quality and Outcomes Framework has now been published online here by the London Journal of Primary Care.
It looks at this form of performance related pay which is being utilised to reward our GPs and finds that there are some worrying consequences for both GP work motivation and patient well-being.
And yet again, as with so many other areas of our society, I find that the Government doesn’t know best, as it often thinks it does, and in fact they need to start listening a lot more to the people who naturally do know better about their own area of expertise.
