The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Nevetts is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nevetts in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.7 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no positive reviews in the last 12 months)
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 4.708 for Nevetts is calculated as follows: ( (17 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.708
b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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 maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users 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.
If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.
The 1.747 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nevetts is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625
Target of 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8.2 Target = 0.244 , then divided by 2 = 0.122
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Nevetts has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.455) from 2 Reviews

The girls at Nevetts have been fantastic. They are always happy chatting and laughing with the residents, even though they are very busy. I feel I can ask or speak to them about any issues/concerns we have. My father-in-law really enjoys living there. He feels very comfortable with the staff too. Very glad they had space for him.
