The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):
Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)
The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.667 for Little Bramingham Farm is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.667
Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'
Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)
The 5 points available are broken down as follows:
3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.
0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)
(Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.
(For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

1 Positive Reviews = 3
0.1 x 1 Positive Reviews = 0.100

How Likely are the Reviewers to Recommend Little Bramingham Farm?
Reviewer Connection to Little Bramingham Farm
Review submitted from a Postal Card by Susanne M (Daughter of Resident/Service User) on Tuesday 22 December 2015. Review relates to July 2015.
I have looked at many homes and price to Little Bramingham Farm. My father was in a nursing home. The standard of care at Little Bramingham Farm is excellent. The home/staff are excellent, supportive, caring and care for the residents in a caring dignified way. They are certainly overworked as the residents needs change often for the worse, due to age, but the staff cope. They work without breaks but they are always pleasant, patient and helpful. There's always a warm greeting whatever the day or time. The only concern I would have is food, during the day there is a good wholesome meal. Breakfast is cereal or toast never bacon, eggs or a bacon sandwich. Tea time is poor, soup, toast pate, scrambled egg, yoghurt, ice cream. The meals are often cold. There is no offer of supper and although you may be told the residents can ask, residents often do not like to. Tea trolley is at 7pm after that will not be until morning.
