A pair of care homes have been given new scores in North Somerset in the past month.

The Care Quality Commission gives ratings to care providers and other organisations across England. It rates how well the service is performing against various criteria – with overall rankings ranging from 'outstanding' to 'inadequate'.

Information from the CQC reveals two services in North Somerset have received ratings from the start of February.

Felix House was awarded a 'good' rating after an inspection on March 17 2021. The rating was published on May 18.

On February 22, Cadbury Hall Care Home was judged to be needing improvement. The care home had last been inspected on January 25 2023.

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.
