What is the QOF?

Introduced in 2004 as part of the General Medical Services Contract, the QOF is a voluntary incentive scheme for GP practices in the UK, rewarding them for how well they care for patients.

The QOF contains groups of indicators, against which practices score points according to their level of achievement. NICE has been asked to focus on the clinical and health improvement indicators in the QOF, which includes a number of domains such as coronary heart disease and hypertension.

The QOF gives an indication of the overall achievement of a practice through a points system. Practices aim to deliver high quality care across a range of areas, for which they score points. The results are published annually. You can find our QOF results from the year 2005 onwards by clicking on this QOF link and then clicking on the individual year.

You can order your repeats in many ways:

You can tick the required items on your prescription slip (right hand side) and hand it over at the reception desk.

Or you order your repeats via email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

It is also possible to order your repeat prescription using our online services. You must be a registered patient at the Wenlock Surgery and you must also be eligible to have a repeat prescription without a consultation with the doctor or one of the Practice Nurses. Please ask at the reception desk to give you a username and password if you have not yet used this service before.

For safety reasons we ask you not to request repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Please put in your request at least 2 working days before you run out. Repeat prescriptions are issued at the reception desk.

We like to see patients on long-term medication every 3-12 months. Therefore at the end of that time you will be asked to see a doctor or nurse before we issue a further prescription.
