Patient survey optional in Scotland

19th August 2010

The Scottish Government has confirmed that some GPs in Scotland will have the chance of opting out of this year’s patient experience survey.

The government said it would not carry out a full survey in 2010-11 to assess patient access to GPs because many GP practices had already achieved the full Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) points for this last year. GPs who achieved maximum QOF points on the PE7 and PE8 access indicators last year will be able to opt out of but continue to receive their full QOF access funding.
