Electronic Care Summary

The NHS in Scotland automatically harvests a list of medications, allergies, and medical histories from GP computers for every patient in Scotland. Please let us know if you do not want your information to be shared in this way.

Quality of outcomes Framework (QoF)

We use the Quality of outcomes Framework (QoF) points system to measure the quality of the care that we provide to our patients.

This gives a score out of 1000 possible points, with points being scored for providing evidence based care across a range of chronic diseases and preventions. Also, points are scored for good quality clinic management and easy access to care for patients.

The 2008/9 scores are as follows:
