Data quality annex
Please note: The outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the last quarter of 2019-20 has led to unprecedented changes in the work and behaviour of GP practices and consequently data in this publication may have been impacted.
As such, caution should be taken in drawing any conclusions from the data without due consideration of the circumstances both locally and nationally as of 31 March 2020 and we would recommend that any use of this data is accompanied by an appropriate caveat.
In a letter published on 19 March 2020 by NHS England and Improvement it was confirmed that the QOF 2019-20 year-end calculations were to be interrogated to ensure no GP practice is paid less than in the previous financial year. This means that the QOF achievement figures included within this publication may not reflect the figures used in final payments made to GP practices. Further details can be found on the NHS Digital QOF payments 2019-20 page.
