Quality at Garscadden Burn

This post arose from an email from Dr Peter Cawston (@petermakeslinks) who wrote a report (Garscadden Burn GP Report 2015-16 ) on how his practice has used freedom from the limitations of the Quality Outcomes Framework (QOF) to explore a more holistic and meaningful model of quality for his inner-city deprived patient population.

I am deeply impressed by the drive and committment his practice has shown to develop this. It is clear they have made financial sacrifices as well as a great deal of committment in time to activities that would normally lie outside the remit of  the General Medical Services contract.

At a time when a new model of quality is emerging to replace QOF I find this hugely encouraging. Thank you Peter for allowing me to share.
