b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 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 3.917 for Cornford House is calculated as follows: ( (5 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 3.917
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 1.536 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cornford House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 14 positive Reviews (70 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14 Target = 0.071 , then divided by 2 = 0.036

Review submitted from a Postal Card by T R (Friend of Resident) on Friday 5 February 2016. Relates to January 2016.
I have had to speak to the manager of the home several times about certain things that I didn't like, and she has been excellent, and has sorted out everything that I have asked of her. I can honestly say she has been the best manager since my friend has been there. The chef is going and there is a new one. I will also say all the time she is in charge I will 100% recommend you as a care home.
