Indicators no longer in QOF (INLIQ)

Purpose and outline

As part of the contractual agreement for 2019/20, it was agreed to continue collecting information relating to indicators no longer in QOF. Indicators retired since 2014-15 will continue to be collected under this extraction.

The reporting is essential, as DH, PHE and other healthcare groups have indicated that the information linked to these indicators is essential for their work and wider healthcare programmes.

Not all the indicators that are no longer in QOF will continue to be extracted, only those where it's felt that continued data would be useful.

For future years, further retirements would be considered for ongoing collections and the indicators in this collection would also be reviewed to check the appropriateness of continuing to collect the data.
