Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) recorded prevalence, achievement and exceptions data 2013-14.
This publication provides data for the reporting year April 2013 to March 2014 and covers all General Practices in England which participated in the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) in 2013-14. Participation by practices in the QOF is voluntary, though participation rates are very high, with most Personal Medical Services (PMS) practices also taking part. This publication covers data for 7,921 practices in 2013-14.
Previously, the Quality Management and Analysis System (QMAS) was used for the extraction of QOF data. In July 2013, QMAS was replaced by the Calculating Quality Reporting Service (CQRS), together with the General Practice Extraction Service (GPES).
Data are provided at indicator level as set out in the 2013/14 general medical services (GMS) contract quality and outcomes framework.
There have been many changes to QOF coding and indicators. For a summary of these please see the summary of QOF changes for 2013-14. These are referred to throughout this publication. Consideration must be given to changes to indicators and their definitions each year when interpreting differences and comparing data from one year to the next.
Between the 5th June and the 8th August 2014, the HSCIC held a consultation on the publication of the QOF information on achievement, exceptions and recorded prevalence. Changes resulting from this consultation are detailed in this publication on page 10 and via the QOF home page at: www.hscic.gov.uk/qof

Please note: the original "prevalence-all-levels.xlsx" spreadsheet has been replaced because the full list sizes for 2013-14 were incorrect on three of the 24 sheets, and were showing the list sizes of the practice ten rows above. The prevalence rates, age specific list sizes and other calculations were all made using the correct information and have not changed. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
