The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for St George's Nursing Home (Wigan) Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St George's Nursing Home (Wigan) Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.468 for St George's Nursing Home (Wigan) Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.468

  • 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:

    1. 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.

    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.

    3. 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 4.073 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St George's Nursing Home (Wigan) Ltd is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.323

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

I was extremely pleased with all the staff at St George's Care Home in Wigan, in the way they all looked after my mother in the last two weeks she was in there before she passed away.
The way they treated her with care and dignity was as much as anyone could ask for and you could see it was genuine.

Recent changes in the management have shown an improvement, especially in communication. The staff are caring and friendly and treat all the residents with respect. The building (a converted school) is calm and maintained well but is showing it's age. Overall, the organisation cares for the residents.

I have found this care home to be most suitable for my mother. The staff are courteous although some of the seniors neglect to call me if my mother has an issue, other are more diligent. My main concern is safety and security the lift is regularly out of order not acceptable in case of fire and the idea of "sliding" residents downstairs on a cushion is ludicrous. The entrance to doors are a hazard as the outer door does not lock and the inner doors don't lock if they're closed the wrong way Insecure!

Abin Francis, Registered Manager at St George's Nursing Home (Wigan) Ltd responded to this review on 20 Apr 2017:

Thank you for the review, we are aiming to improve our service all the time. With me as a new manager, all staff are getting training relating to contacting family and we will make sure this happens in future. The issue relating to the lift is been resolved now. But in the case of an emergency (fire), we are not allowed to use the lift because of fire regulations.
Both entrance doors are locked during the night and during the day, the office staff will be available for help.
