QOF indicators can change every year, and new measures and indicators are either introduced or retired. The QOF is not about performance management but resourcing and then rewarding best practice. QOF is part of the General Medical Services (GMS) contract for general practice and was introduced on 1 April 2004.
The documents supporting the GMS contract are available on the NHS England website.
The legal documents (Regulations, DES Directions and the Statement on Financial Entitlements (SFE)) supporting the GMS contract are available on the GOV.UK website.
