#1 Quick Tips for Collecting More QOF Points

In recent weeks, practices have been preparing their final run up to QOF targets for 2015/2016. With such a long and comprehensive document to advise practices on their QOF indicators, it is no wonder that practices struggle to implement every area to its full potential. We have been in touch with various experienced Practice Managers to get some advice on Quick Tips for collecting more QOF points. These have been written in this blog.

#2 Practice Training 101: The NewRules of Consent

Not before time, the GMC guidance on consent has been accepted as proper practice by the law courts. A recent legal case has effectively changed the law on consent, and practice managers should ensure that all staff and doctors are aware of the implications for the practice and doctors. Here we look at how the question of consent used to be treated and how it must be treated now.

#3 Can You Refuse a Patient Registration Application?

Under the NHS Constitution, any member of the public can choose to register at any GP practice and then request a particular doctor.

#4 Six Signs of Good Governance in a GP Practice thatthe CQC Love to See

When considering the way in which a GP practice is managed and led, the CQC look at how patient care and service delivery are both maintained and continuously improved. This is at the heart of a well-led practice, and forms the basis of its governance.

It has impacts at all levels and while governance is led by the practice’s senior members it should engage all employees.

In this blog, we look at the five questions a practice needs to answer when assessing its performance in clinical governance. These five questions relate to how the CQC inspects clinical governance and key framework it supports.

#6The Secret to Avoiding an Inadequate Rating
