b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 5 for Northwood Nursing & Residential Care is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Northwood Nursing & Residential Care is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 5.4 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Leo H (Brother of Resident) on Wednesday 23 September 2015. Relates to September 2015.
I don't usually write reviews but I must let it be known that Northwood is the place to be if you are looking for nursing care for yourself or family. My brother who recently spent the remaining days of his life at Northwood after being moved from hospital with a chronic lung condition. Even though he was only with them for 5 days he sadly passed away but the quality of care did not go unnoticed by my brother, who was quick to point out to me "this place is so clean" , it certainly is exceptionally clean and I would give 10/10 without hesitation. From day one my brother was treated with dignity and kindness and this continued right to the end, and a carer was holding his hand as he finally passed away. The nursing staff also deserve a heartfelt thanks as my brother described them as angels. Every member of staff from the manager downwards, please accept my thanks for making my brothers final days on this earth as comfortable as possible.
