NICE proposes new QOF indicators for diabetes, epilepsy, learning disability

On 10 August, NICE published its first recommendations for changes to the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF), listing potential new indicators for epilepsy, diabetes and learning disability in its ‘menu’. The menu can be found here and recommendations for indicators that could be retired here.

These are the first potential indicators to be produced since NICE took over the process in April this year. These indicators will be discussed in negotiations between NHS Employers and the British Medical Association about the QOF for 2010/2011.
