  • 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 4.333 for Barchester Sherwood Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.333

      • 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 3.391 for Barchester Sherwood Court Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 3 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 3 Positive Reviews = 0.300

      3. (3 Positive Reviews ÷ 66 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.091

I cannot praise the Sherwood Court Nursing home highly enough. My dad had terminal cancer and was with them for three weeks until he passed away there. In that time he was happy and made comfortable, the staff were incredible and could not have done more for him. The facilities and cleanliness were great and he was treated with dignity and kindness while also having a laugh and joke with the staff which made him feel more like an individual. The overall treatment he and my family received made a very painful time much easier to cope with.

In my opinion the current staffing levels (1 nurse and 2 care assistants to 10 patients) is too low to provide the care I expect.
She has dementia and does not receive adequate stimulation and attention.
The staff try to care as much as possible, but staffing levels do not allow them to spend as much time with them as we would like and the patient's need.
