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 4.25 for Kingsland Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (6 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.25
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 3.116 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kingsland Care Centre is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8.6 Target = 0.116

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Sandra V (Daughter of Resident) on Monday 19 June 2017. Relates to April 2017.
My 96 year old father was a resident in Kingsland for 6 months. He had moderate dementia and due to a bleed on the brain the previous August was unable to move. The care he received in Kingsland was exemplary.
Each care assistant treated him with respect, compassion and kindness and even laundry and cleaning staff took the time to chat to him and took an interest in him. I visited Dad every day and in all that time I never saw anything which caused me concern. The nursing staff were professional and very quick to respond if they noticed any medical issue which they felt needed the doctor or further advice or investigation.
They were also kind to Dad and very supportive and accessible to me at all times. The manager of Kingsland was compassionate and very professional. She maintained and expected high standards from all the staff but was at the same time also very approachable and willing to listen. I couldn't speak highly enough of the care Dad received. He felt secure and cared for.
