We actively promote residents' and relatives' forums and regularly carry out satisfaction surveys that are benchmarked to the industry to ensure that we continue to improve and develop our services to meet people's needs and expectations.

The survey also provides helpful insights into the experiences of people using our service and we have used this information to help us continually improve as an organisation.
Alongside the Your Care Rating survey of residents, we also conduct our own annual survey through independent research company Ipsos MORI for all relatives of residents.
