General description

The Quality Assurance and Improvement Framework (QAIF) was introduced as part of the General Medical Services (GMS) contract reform for 2019-20. It replaces the Quality and Outcome Framework (QOF), which was originally introduced in 2004 and ceased after 2018-19.

This StatsWales cube provides data on age specific prevalence by disease register, i.e. patients of a particular age group on a disease register, as a proportion of all patients of that age group registered at a GP practice. This is also broken down by gender.


Data collection and calculation

The information presented here is provided to the Welsh Government by Digital Health and Care Wales.

The age specific prevalence data by gender is sourced separately from Audit+ and is shown as contextual information. Audit+ is a centrally funded analysis tool that is available to GP practices in Wales, and it is non-mandatory which enables a GP practice to choose whether or not to use this analysis tool. Because of this, the data from Audit+ may differ slightly to data sourced directly from QAIF.

For Influenza, the data reflects the target population as defined by FLU001W and FLU002W. The data therefore includes the registered population aged 65 or more and the registered population aged under 65 with one or more of the qualifying conditions defined in QAIF (COPD, diabetes, CHD or stroke). So for the age 65 or above cohorts, all registered patients are counted in the numerator (100%). Influenza data is not available for 2021-22.

The Audit+ data for 2019-20 include disease registers that were included historically as part of QOF, but have since been retired and are no longer a part of QAIF. These include cardiovascular disease - primary prevention, depression and smoking (with chronic conditions).

Note, patients with gender recorded as ‘not known’ are included in the 'All' gender category.
