The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) published the 2017/18 menu of QOF recommendations on 1 August 2016. The menu will be used to inform negotiations on the Quality and Outcomes Framework between NHS Employers and the BMA’s General Practitioners Committee (GPC) as part of the wider General Medical Services (GMS) contract negotiations. Following negotiations, full details of any changes will be published on both the NHS Employers and BMA websites and the QOF guidance will be updated accordingly.

The NICE Advisory Committee has recommended three new and replacement indicators across the following disease areas. One of the new indicators is recommended as a replacement for a current indicator. For details please see the relevant associated guidance:

• Diabetes (one new and one replacement indicator)
• Obesity

For full details of the recommendations made by NICE along with any relevant supporting documents, please see the NICE website.
