Adults Social Care

The quality of care and support

The social care related quality of life indicator provides an overall view of the quality of life the users of their care and support services experience. In 2014/15 the overall score for users of social care was 19.4 (out of a maximum possible score of 24). This increased to 19.5 in 2015/16 (England average 19.1).

After an increase, from 61.9% in 2013/14 to 62.5% in 2014/15, in the proportion of users who were extremely or very satisfied with the care or support services they received, there has been a further increase to 63.1% in 2015/16 (England average 64.4%).

While it is encouraging that around two thirds of users are extremely or very satisfied with the care and support services they receive, there is room for improvement to ensure that everyone has the best possible experience.
