  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Northlands Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 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 4.646 for Northlands Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (32 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.646

  • 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 4.15 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Northlands Nursing Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.400

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

8.8 Northlands Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.796) from 4 Reviews

My father seems to have settled pretty quickly into Northlands and appears as happy as we would expect given his condition. The staff (all) are always friendly and approachable when we visit and appear to have built a mutually respectful relationship with Dad.
If we ever have any questions, the care team and management are quick to respond and deal with our queries with sensitivity and respect.

Care is second to none. Very caring, considerate and helpful. My husband is always clean and tidy, he eats well and I feel there is always help on hand if he has difficulty feeding himself.
The atmosphere is happy, calm and caring. Most importantly, I feel confident that he is well looked after and this makes me feel much happier.
