'Driving up Standards in Care'

 

 

RDB Star Rating was established in 1997 to develop an assessment system specifically for the Care Sector.


Based on the principles of best practice benchmarking, this assessment focuses exclusively on the outcomes of care and, thus, provides a real measure of the 'quality of life' for residents.

 

The RDB Star Rating System and the assessment tool were developed, after lengthy consultation with the broadest range of interested parties.This partnership approach included key stakeholders from the independent sector, the voluntary sector and the local authorities and helped to break down some of the barriers which had been prevalent in the care sector at that time.
