GP contract reform is part of the long term plan

GPs, patients and healthcare professionals are being given the chance to have their say on plans by the NHS which will help shape the future of a modern general practice.

The NHS is looking at ways to reform the GP contract to provide a stronger and more sustainable general practice for patients as part of the new NHS long term plan.

In particular, with a wide range of partners, NHS England has reviewed the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) which provides payments for achieving outcomes that reflect high quality care in general practice.

It is also looking at how general practice payments might change to fairly support the rollout of digital technology across the country.

NHS England is inviting views from GPs, patients and healthcare professionals on both documents.
