In the current list of inspections, 69 care homes and homecare agencies have been rated as Good, 25 have been rated Requires Improvement, one has been rated Inadequate and one has been rated as Outstanding.

  1. If just 1% of homes can achieve an Outstanding rating, I question what purpose this rating serves to the public.
    Is the bar not set to high?
    I recall Andera Sutcliffe saying at the start of ratings being given that she was expecting 3% of providers to achieve Outstanding, not 1%.
    At the time I considered even 3% to be rather useless to the public, but Andrea, does this not suggest to you that you have missed the mark and this rating needs an overhall?
