QOF business rules v27

30 October 2013

The Health and Social Care Information Centre has released v27 of the QOF business rules.

Due to historical discrepancies between the version 2 and CTV3 codes for mental health two codes have been added to the mental health register in CTV3: E1124 (single major depressive episode, severe, with psychosis) and E1134 (recurrent major depressive episodes, severe, with psychosis).

Patients with a record of these codes will now be included in the mental health register and may be eligible for inclusion in the mental health indicators (along with smoking indicators SMOK002 and SMOK005).
