Caring Times editor GEOFF HODGSON presents an overview of how the CSCI’s fourth and final report on the State of Social Care in England has been interpreted.

Ninety-three per cent of care homes in England are providing adequate or better-than-adequate care, according to national aggregates of star ratings published in the Commission for Social Care Inspection’s (CSCI) fourth and final report on the ‘State of Social Care in England 2007-08’. Here are the figures:

0 stars (poor) – 3% 1 star (adequate) – 24% 2 stars (good) – 56% 3 stars (excellent) – 13% As yet unrated – 4%
