a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.
The Average Rating of 1.333 for Lillibet House is calculated as follows: ( (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (10 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 1.333
b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'
The 5 points available are broken down as follows:
4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.
1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.
The 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lillibet House is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = -0.25
Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered beds ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Lillibet House
Submitted from a Website Submission by LesleyB on Wednesday 20 July 2016. Relates to July 2016.
Staff ignored me when I arrived, no greeting at all, no questions asked. No mention of how my uncle was, felt like I was in the wrong place.
I arrived to find my uncle, sitting in an uncomfortable chair with no buzzer available, no staff on this floor, no one around. Equipment left in the middle of the room, was so old, it is a wonder it still being used.
Dinner, well that was the most disgusting plate of food I ever seen in my life. If you think a frozen chicken kiev, with gravy (so thin more like water), vegetables were colourless mush, and the mash potatoes slop. Other choice was faggots!!!!, are we in the war years again. For dessert tinned peaches. The food was left on the edge of a tray table, no one spoke to my uncle, just plonked it down, no serviettes, not asked if he needed anything cut up, mind you, he could not eat it anyway, but no concern from the staff at all.
Should not be allowed, when someone is frail and old, they need care , attention, kindness, did not exist .

Charlotte Chesyre, Proprietor at Lillibet House responded to this review on 26 Jul 2016:
It is disappointing that Mrs Burke did not speak to either the Manager or the Quality Manager as both were in the building on the day of her visit. Even more surprising that, in view of what she maintains occurred, she did not contact the duty Social work Team to raise these issues and her concerns.
In view of this, the accuracy of the comments remains questionable and as no communication or comments were received on the day, the option to investigate is, unfortunately, no longer available. However, to ensure complete transparency, we have passed these comments on to the residents placement Social worker.
