Care Homes: Hertfordshire

Volume 482: debated on Wednesday 5 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many nursing homes inspected by the Commission for Social Care Inspection in (a) Hemel Hempstead and (b) Hertfordshire received a (i) 0 star rating (poor), (ii) 1 star rating (adequate), (iii) 2 star rating (good) and (iv) 3 star rating (excellent) in each year since 2000. (232692)

I am informed by the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) that CSCI can only provide the information requested from May 2008, when the star rating system was launched. This is shown in the following tables.

The first table shows star ratings for nursing homes in Hertfordshire published in May and the second table shows the latest data available. All figures are inclusive of Hemel Hempstead. CSCI does not collect data for Hemel Hempstead separately because it is not a council with adult social services responsibility.
