    The Review Score of 9.514 for Northcourt Lodge Nursing Home is based on 15 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 4.514 for Northcourt Lodge Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (111 Excellents x 5) + (49 Goods x 4) + (14 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 177 Ratings = 4.514

    • 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 5 for Northcourt Lodge Nursing Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 15 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 15 Positive Reviews = 1.500 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (15 Positive Reviews ÷ 22 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.364 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10.

A great home. The staff are always helpful. The home is always clean and resident's clothes are cleaned on a daily basis. There is something going on every day for people to do if they wish to. Food is cooked on site every day and fresh veg/fruit is used where possible. A place where we can leave our Mum and not worry.

My mother has been in this home for ten months now and in that time she has been very well looked after by all of the staff. She has severe mobility problems requiring hoist and wheelchairs together with incontinence problems. All have been dealt with patiently and with respect. Mother is always well dressed and respectable and every effort is made to get her into the communal lounge every day. She has been happy throughout her stay here.

The care and respect is evident from the moment you are greeted at the front door. My Uncle suddenly had a new lease of life from entering his Care Home, the memory of which we will treasure always. My Uncle was so happy about Northcourt Lodge. He loved his room and took delight at seeing the birds and squirrels through the window. The Manager and Staff were so caring and respectful. The surroundings are cheerful. It all makes for an uplifting and happy atmosphere. Thank you Everyone.
