This guidance is self explanatory, it has a foundation in establishing accuracy in QOF reports, but it does contain a clear account of how to make best use of the new QOF verification reports that can be generated by all practices.
Produced by National Workforce Projects, this six step resource pack has been produced to aid the development of the dental workforce in response to local population needs. It sets out to provide an evidence based and effective model that can be adopted by any NHS or partner health and social care organisation.
QOF Annual Review Guidance issued in May 2005 stated that PCTs would need to sample 5% of the Practices in order to carry out an in-depth analysis of practice achievement against the QOF. The PCC Team has recently revised their original briefing with input from DH and this includes updated examples of existing practice. Access the revised briefing for PCT QOF Leads.
This document has been prepared to provide PCTs with advice on how to manage patient access to new dental services available in the local area, either in the form of additional capacity in an existing practice or a new service.
