What do people say?
NHS Personal Social Services Adult Social Care Survey 2014-2015
The above charts shows that levels of satisfaction among service users and carers are higher in Stockton than regional and national rates.
In addition to feedback from people, there is a range of evidence from inspections and audits relating to care and support of older people.
The National Audit of Dementia (2011) hints at one of the reasons for failures in providing high quality care. It found that only 5 percent of hospitals had mandatory training in awareness of dementia for all staff. This is despite estimates that people with dementia over 65 years are using up to one-quarter of hospital beds at any one time.
