Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) pilot 11 Data Provision Notice

Summary

Data Provision Notice for the collection of Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) pilot 11

Overview of the collection

On behalf of the Department of Health and now NHS England, NICE has requested QOF pilot data collections since 2009. The purpose of piloting is to try to understand how potential QOF indicators work in general practice and whether or not these indicators have any unintended or adverse consequences. The piloting is used to assess the effectiveness of these indicators as they may be included in future iterations of QOF dependent on the outcome of the pilot and further negotiations.
NHS Digital is supporting NICE with the data collection for QOF Pilot 11 (the 11th edition of the pilot) in the same way that it supported NICE with the data collection for QOF Pilot 10 (the 10th edition of the Pilot), which took place in early 2016.
