  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.4 for Byron Court Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.4

  • 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 4.481 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Byron Court Nursing Home is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.481

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

Not the best location or buildings but the staff are very good. Mum is very difficult, she can be aggressive and shouts and screams but all the staff are extremely patient and caring which I think is the most important thing.

My mum has been here for 2 and a half years. The home feels like a home and everyone from care staff to office cleaners are all friendly and helpful. The manager is very approachable. My mum is very happy here, she says it is the best place we could have picked for her.

My mum was a resident at Byron Court until recently. She died there and the care, respect and dignity shown not only to my mum but to all the family was fantastic. Every member of staff from careers to cleaners, kitchen, office and management came into mum to show their respect and say good bye and to offer their support to us. Nothing was too much trouble.
Thank you very much.
