Information on the performance of contractors and recognition of good practice for October 2019 to September 2020.

The Quality Assurance and Improvement Framework (QAIF) was introduced as part of the General Medical Services (GMS) contract reform for 2019-20. It replaces the Quality and Outcome Framework (QOF), which was originally introduced in 2004.

As a result of the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, QAIF reporting for 2019-20 was suspended with achievement set to full points. Therefore, achievement data is not presented in this publication. 

Disease prevalence data for registers specified in QAIF are presented in a new interactive tool.

Main points

  • Hypertension has the highest prevalence rate in Wales, with 15.9% of patients on GP lists on this register.
  • 7.8% of patients aged 17 or more, registered to GPs in Wales were on the diabetes mellitus register.
  • 2.4% of patients registered to GPs in Wales were on the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) register.
