Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, Councillor Lawrie Stratford, said: “The trend is unmistakeable. Oxfordshire is well ahead of the national average and that position is improving month by month.

“Our congratulations go to the organisations recently rated outstanding. The CQC does not make this award lightly – as can be seen by the fact that only three per cent of organisations nationally have such a status.

“The county council doesn’t run care homes directly but it has a monitoring and safeguarding role to help care homes reach their potential along with the CQC.

“As a council our over-arching aim is to enable older and disabled people to live independently and care for those in greatest need, working in partnership with private and voluntary sector providers. These new statistics show that the county is being well served compared to other areas. We hope to see more improvement in coming months.”
