Measures, called indicators are agreed as part of the GP contract negotiations every year. These indicators have points attached that are given to GP practices based on how they are doing against these measures.
A new dashboard is created when the indicators change but in general they cover:
- Management of some of the most common chronic conditions, for example asthma and diabetes
- Management of major public health concerns, for example smoking and obesity
- Providing preventative services such as screening or blood pressure checks
