All parties have agreed that this is incorrect and not in accordance with the agreement negotiated between GPC and NHS Employers. As a result, HSCIC has replaced the statement with “Practices continue to undertake the work and code activity related to retired indicators as clinically appropriate. This data extraction will help inform commissioners and provide statistical information but is not intended for performance management purposes”.
The HSCIC documents have been republished.
After discussions with NHSE Y&H Area Team, we would advise practices not to reject the offer on CQRS and we can confirm that by accepting the offer it is purely to give your consent for the data to be extracted. There are no payment consequences attached to this.
Two statements have been issued by the GPC on this issue and these can be accessed using the links below:

Any further queries or concerns regarding the monitoring of the retired QOF indicators should be directed to the LMC Secretariat.
