Welsh silent ratings to run for a year longer – until April 2025

Welsh care homes now have until the end of March 2025 before inspection ratings will be published.

Published inspection ratings will now be introduced from April 2025, a year later than plans stated in previous communications.

This decision by Welsh Government has been made in recognition of the significant pressures the sector has faced over recent years and continues to face. 

A spokesman said: “Extending the pilot phase will also give us the opportunity to learn from the findings of the independent evaluation, to make improvements and to test those improvements in practice.”

Further information about our phased approach can be found in interim guidance for providers on ratings for care homes and domiciliary support services.
