A pair of care homes 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’.

Information from the CQC reveals two services in Barnet have received ratings from the start of January.

Dimensions 4 Matlock Close was awarded a ‘requires improvement’ rating after an inspection on November 1st. The rating was published on January 5th.

On January 23th, Henry Nihill House was judged to be ‘good’. The care home had last been inspected on November 23rd.

The CQC gives organisations four different ratings. The worst is an ‘inadequate’ rating, which ordinarily results in the organisation being placed in special measures by the CQC. Social care services can also be given a less serious rating of ‘requires improvement’ when they are not up to standard.

At the other end of the scale, services given ‘outstanding’ ratings are judged to be performing exceptionally well, and a ‘good’ rating means the organisation is meeting expectations.
