What has happened as a result?
The findings were used to calculate two National Indicators:
- NI 127 (self reported experience of social care users) where 71.8% said equipment / minor adaptation had improved their quality of life and
- NI 128 (user reported measure of dignity and respect in their treatment) where 90.6% said they were happy with the way they had been treated.
The findings will be available in full in autumn 2010, where we will be able to benchmark ourselves against other local authorities.
