The tougher the better

the effect of an increased performance threshold on the performance of general practitioners

Yan Feng, Ada Hoi Yan Ma, Shelley Farrar, Matt Sutton

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

In April 2006, payment thresholds were raised for GPs who participate in Scotland’s Ouality and Outcomes Framework. GPs were required to meet new, higher thresholds on some indicators to receive maximum levels of payment. In this paper, OHE’s Yan Feng and her colleagues examine whether this change in fact improved GP performance and whether the impact differed across GPs. Specifically, they examine whether low-, mid- and high-performing GPs changed behaviour and, if so, to what extent.
