b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.667 for St Andrew's is calculated as follows: ( (8 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.667
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 3.111 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Andrew's is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.111
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My Grandmother was a permanent resident at St Andrews Nursing Home. She enjoyed her time here, was always taking part in different activities. My Grandma made lots of friends here, there's a nice friendly atmosphere and it's always a pleasure to come and visit. I was always impressed with the meals at St Andrew's, very tasty and nutritious. Lovely cosy bedrooms.
All round brilliant care home with an excellent level of care.
