  • 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 4.5 for Woodhurst Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (13 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.5

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.147 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woodhurst Care Centre is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target = 0.147

My father has to be moved into Woodhurst as a result of my mother being admitted to hospital as she was his primary carer. Dad went into Woodhurst 2 days before my mother sadly died. So in effect dad lost his wife of 60 years and his home all in one fell swoop. The staff at Woodhurst were obviously aware of all of this and treated him with the utmost compassion, sensitivity and care. He has now settled in well and for me, it has made an impossibly hard and traumatic time for us just that bit easier. I know my dad is safe, well looked after and above all cared for.

My relative went into the above care home in May 2015. I have experienced no problems with the care from the staff employed in this care home. I am really happy with this establishment and their commitment to the residents. It is always difficult to make a care decision for a relative but I feel my choice of home has made this change a lifestyle for my mother more easier to take.
