Pay for performance in general practice: Lessons from the UK Stephen Campbell

Dr Stephen Campbell gives an update on the role and impact of pay for performance in the UK in this lecture recorded at The Australian National University on 3 March 2011.

He argues in defence of pay for performance but highlights the shortcomings of the indicators chosen for incentivisation in the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF). He also recommends how pay for performance should and should not be used in Australia.

Dr Stephen Campbell is a primary care health services researcher and leader who has been published in more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, including two articles in the New England Journal of Medicine in the last three years. He developed many of the original indicators that went in to the QOF and now leads the external contractor working with the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) to support the ongoing development of indicators for NICE and the QOF. He led the development of the UK Royal College of General Practitioners Practice Accreditation scheme and co-developed the European Practice Assessment accreditation scheme. He teaches primary health care on the Manchester MPH. He holds a joint contract at The University of Heidelberg and an honorary contract at the University of Nijmegan. Dr Campbell has been involved in quality of primary care/general practice for 18 years and brings a unique perspective as someone who has been involved in and led pay for performance in UK general practice from the start.

Presented by The Australian Primary Health Care Research Institute.
