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 5 for Oakwood ABI Service is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
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 3.385 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oakwood ABI Service is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 2.6 positive Reviews (13 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 2.6 Target = 0.385

Review submitted from a Postal Card by Julia S (Daughter of Resident) on Friday 13 October 2017. Relates to October 2017.
The wonderful caring people at Oakwood have been caring for my dad since 2014, following a serious road accident and a subsequent head injury.
The manager at Oakwood is extremely caring and spent a lot of her time fighting for the correct care for dad (we are caught in the middle of a dispute between various councils who won't take responsibility for him) and she has been relentless in the midst of this. Amazing.
