These are the results from the 2015 Patient-Led Assessments of the Care Environment (PLACE) programme. These self-assessments are undertaken by teams of NHS and private/independent health care providers, and include at least 50 per cent members of the public (known as patient assessors). They focus on the environment in which care is provided, as well as supporting non-clinical services such as cleanliness, food, hydration, and the extent to which the provision of care with privacy and dignity is supported. In 2015, for the first time the assessments considered aspects of the environment in relation to the provision of care to those with dementia.
Note: The Site Scores and Base Scores tables published on August 11th contained an error relating to the score for Dementia in respect of Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust (Code TAH) Forest Close site (Code TAHXM). This hospital does not admit patients with dementia therefore the score shown should not have been included. The Site Scores and Base Scores tables have been amended to correct that error. No other data published on August 11th is affected.
On 8th September 2016 the Organisational Excel and CSV files were replaced, the scores within them have been corrected.
