Multiple social care services have been given new scores in Barnet in the past month.

The Care Quality Commission is in charge of inspecting social care services across England. The organisation judges care providers across various metrics – with the best possible rating being ‘outstanding’, and the worst ‘inadequate’.

Figures for the last month show ratings were given to the following care homes in Barnet:

• Sunridge Court: Good, last inspected on September 13th.

Two Rivers Care Home: Inadequate, last inspected on September 6th.

• Magnolia Court: Good, last inspected on October 25th.

Other social care services in the area were also rated:

• Bluebird Care (Barnet): Good, last inspected on September 28th.

The highest possible rating is ‘outstanding’: given to organisations exceeding expectations. Meanwhile, a ‘good’ scores shows the provider is meeting the CQC’s criteria.

However, a service found to be needing improvement will not be up to the CQC’s standards, and a service given an ‘inadequate’ rating will ordinarily be placed in special measures by the CQC.
