Reviews

6.5 Priory Park Care Home has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.546)

The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Priory Park Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Priory Park Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.421 for Priory Park Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.421

  • 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 2.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Priory Park Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75 then divided by 2 = 1.875

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.500 , then divided by 2 = 0.250

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

My auntie was in Priory Park Care Home for 2½ - 3 years. I have to say in all honesty she was very carefully looked after and in the last month when she deteriorated I couldn't ask for better people to look after her. It gave me great comfort to know that I was only a phone call away when the inevitable happened. Hats off to the people on my aunt's floor at Priory Park Care Home

Very satisfactory. Although my sister's health declined the staff seemed understanding. I know that her being permanent in a wheelchair, the staff coped very well. Pleased to see two staff at funeral.

On visiting this care home today I experienced, a warm friendly atmosphere obliging management and staff. A cleaner on duty keeping the cleanliness up to standard which was good. The staff treated my friend with dignity and who was given a drink immediately on request. I thought the security excellent. As for value for money I can't answer as I have never asked how much is being paid.

My relative was in the home but sadly passed away on the 25th October 2015. During her three years at Priory Park she was very happy. I found all the staff very courteous and caring at all times.
