Over the course of the past month, additional ratings have been assigned to a number of social care providers in Buckinghamshire.

The Care Quality Commission is responsible for assigning ratings to various organisations and care providers located throughout England.

With overall grades ranging from “outstanding” to “inadequate,” it provides a rating which indicates how well the service is performing un comparison to a number of different criteria.

On December 7, individuals at the Hulcott Nursing Home were informed that the facility “requires improvement.” The residence was examined for the final time on October 10th, 2022.

During the inspection that took place on March 1, 2023, Living Horizon, which is another care provider, was deemed to be of a “good” quality. The evaluation was made public on March 25.

A ‘inadequate’ rating was given to Rushymead Residential Care Home by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) on March 27. November 22 was the date of its most recent examination.

There are four distinct ratings that the CQC assigns to organisations.

The most severe form of grading is a “inadequate” rating, which typically leads to the organisation being placed in special measures by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

‘Requires improvement’ is another grade that can be given to social care services when they are not up to standard. This classification is considered to be relatively less significant.

A ‘good’ grade indicates that the organisation is meeting expectations, while a ‘excellent’ rating indicates that the services are functioning very well. On the other hand, a ‘good’ rating indicates that the company is meeting expectations.

As part of its function as an independent regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) also offers reviews on hospitals, dentist clinics, general practitioner services, and other community health groups. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) website contains further reports on care services.
