Quality and Outcomes Framework (QoF) points 2008/9

We're delighted to announce that Strachur Medical Practice scored 998.5 out of 1,000 in this year's QoF.

QoF is the Quality and Outcomes Framework that every NHS General Medical Services GP Practice has to complete each year. It measures quality care over a wide range of areas such as blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes care and so on.

You can view Strachur Medical Practice's QoF points score and disease prevalence rates online and compare it to other practices in the area, and to the Health Board and national averages. (This year's figures are not available online yet, but previous years are.)

We only missed two points of the 1,000 - one was because we decided not to collect ethnicity data on our patients because we had an ethical objection, and a half point because one of the staff vaccination certificates went missing.

I'd like to thank all of the staff at the practice for their hard work at acheiving this excellent score.`
