    The Review Score of 7.125 for Collingwood Court Care Home is based on 2 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • 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 3.875 for Collingwood Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (5 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 3.875

    • 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:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 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.)

      3. (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

      The Quantity Score of 3.25 for Collingwood Court Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 2 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 2 Positive Reviews = 0.200

      3. (2 Positive Reviews ÷ 80 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.050

The Overall Average of all the Ratings in the following 

2 Reviews is 3.9 out of 5

I think that no nursing home can be one hundred percent perfect. Collingwood Court has had a lot of changes in managers that have severely affected the performance at the home. Some nurses and managers have suddenly disappeared and replacements have not been very good. My mother has never been dirty or smelly whenever I have visited her and for that, I am very grateful.

Probably previous staff needed training in how to greet and deal with relatives dissatisfaction and complaints. Some current staff need training in this as well. I am not sure about how staff are trained to receive relatives but some of them don't do this very well. There may be some issues that need to be worked through for some members of staff to improve their overall communication skills.
On the whole, I find the staff kind, caring and helpful. They do all that they can for my mother. I think that the staff and management are heading in the right direction. Thank you.

Rose Pickering, Customer Service Administrator at Collingwood Court Care Home responded to this review on 24 Oct 2016:

Thank you for your review. Your comments are extremely important to us and our residents’ health and wellbeing is our absolute priority. We will discuss your feedback with the home’s manager to help them continually improve their service. The Bupa Customer Care Team.

On reading the CQC report, we were sceptical, but, thank goodness, reassured by the manager.
The service provided by the nurses and care staff was absolutely fantastic. Although my mother's health deteriorated, she always looked well.
She was always clean and the staff made time for her. They went 'over and above' in the care provided.

It would be good, if invoices are sent with bank details for ease of payment.

I'm glad we chose Collingwood Court for my mum's last days.
