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 4.667 for Sotwell Hill House is calculated as follows: ( (8 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.667
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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sotwell Hill House is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Jean S (Daughter of Resident) on Sunday 26 July 2015. Relates to July 2015.
Constantly impressed by the commitment and quality of the management and staff. The rural setting is beautiful and residents easily make their home in these peaceful and comfortable surroundings. Privacy is respected but there is also ample opportunity to socialise and join in with a varied activity programme (provided by staff and regular outside providers).
Trips and outings are many and varied and personal services such as chiropody, hairdressing and eye appointments are all offered in house. Attention to the smallest detail is carefully observed and a variety of excuses for celebration are enjoyed by all whether a birthday, a public holiday or the annual strawberry tea and brass band afternoon.
We highly recommend Sotwell Hill House.
