PSNC Briefing 014/17: Quality Payments – referrals for asthma reviews (March 2017)

This PSNC Briefing provides an overview of how to achieve the ‘referrals for asthma reviews’ quality criterion of the Quality Payments Scheme.

PSNC Briefing 068/16, published in November 2016, provided an overview of how to achieve the ‘referrals for asthma reviews’ quality criterion of the Quality Payments Scheme. At that time, some details relating to the gateway and quality criteria for the Quality Payments Scheme still needed to be clarified by NHS England, so as further information became available, PSNC included this on the Quality Payments pages of the PSNC website (psnc.org.uk/quality). Now that most of the outstanding matters have been clarified, following publication of the NHS England guidance documents, this PSNC Briefing provides revised guidance to contractors on meeting the ‘referrals for asthma reviews’ quality criterion of the Quality Payments Scheme.

This Briefing was updated in October 2017:

PSNC Briefing 014/17: Quality Payments – Referrals for asthma review (v2)
