    The Average Rating of 3.639 for Collingwood Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (5 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (14 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 3.639

    2. 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.

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.063

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Collingwood Court Care Home

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
  • Partner of Resident/Service User

This home is under a full refurbishment at the moment (which was badly needed) it has had a number of management and staff changes which has been very unsettling to staff residents and families. Let's hope it all settles down now. At the moment I have seen quite a few changes for the good, i.e management/staff and activities. My review is as best as it can be under the circumstances lets hope future reviews will be much more positive.

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. We are pleased to hear about your positive experience and appreciate your comments about our home and will share your comments with the home’s manager. The Bupa Customer Care Team.

I think that no nursing home can be one hundred percent perfect. Collingwood Court has had a lot of changes in managers that have severely affected the performance at the home. Some nurses and managers have suddenly disappeared and replacements have not been very good. My mother has never been dirty or smelly whenever I have visited her and for that, I am very grateful.

Probably previous staff needed training in how to greet and deal with relatives dissatisfaction and complaints. Some current staff need training in this as well. I am not sure about how staff are trained to receive relatives but some of them don't do this very well. There may be some issues that need to be worked through for some members of staff to improve their overall communication skills.
On the whole, I find the staff kind, caring and helpful. They do all that they can for my mother. I think that the staff and management are heading in the right direction. Thank you.

Thank you for your review. Your comments are extremely important to us and our residents’ health and wellbeing is our absolute priority. We will discuss your feedback with the home’s manager to help them continually improve their service. The Bupa Customer Care Team.

On reading the CQC report, we were sceptical, but, thank goodness, reassured by the manager.
The service provided by the nurses and care staff was absolutely fantastic. Although my mother's health deteriorated, she always looked well.
She was always clean and the staff made time for her. They went 'over and above' in the care provided.

It would be good, if invoices are sent with bank details for ease of payment.

I'm glad we chose Collingwood Court for my mum's last days.
