Quality and Outcomes Framework Data (QOF) measures how practices are delivering on the GP contract. It also makes it easier to monitor long-term conditions such as chronic heart disease, stroke and diabetes. This means that over time it will help tackle health inequalities by targeting those at risk and targeting resources where it’s needed most. Reported on an annual basis, the data covers a range of indicators which are part of the new GP contract. These include management of chronic conditions, the patient experience, how the practice is organised and specific services such as cervical screening and maternity services. The 18 clinical areas are:

 

  • Chronic heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Epilepsy
  • Hypothyrodism
  • Cancer
  • Palliative care
  • Mental health
  • Asthma
  • Dementia
  • Depression
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Obesity
  • Learning disabilities
  • Smoking

The Integrated Medium Term Plan is the key planning document for the Health Board setting out the milestones and actions they are taking in the next 1 to 3 years in order to progress Shaping Our Future Wellbeing, their ten-year strategy. It is based on the health needs of the population, delivering quality services and ensuring equitable and timely access to services and sets out how they will deliver their mission Caring for People; Keeping People Well, and vision that a person’s chance of leading a healthy life is the same wherever they live and whoever they are.

The strategy sets out how Cardiff and Vale University Health Board and its partners intend to deliver agreed strategic objectives over the next ten years. It describes the challenges partners face, the principles which will underpin the development of their services and the steps intended to bring about the change required to achieve the vision. It recognises the need to take a balanced approach to achieving change for our population, service priorities, sustainability and culture. The strategy can be read by clicking here. To find out more about the development of the strategy, please click here.
