The team at Sanctuary Care’s Athlone House Nursing Home in Westminster are bursting with pride after retaining a highly-respected national award for their delivery of end-of-life care.
They collected the Platinum Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Quality Hallmark Award, which recognises health and social care providers delivering quality care in the final year of life, at the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Conference and Awards ceremony recently in London.
David Coker, home manager said: “We are just delighted that we have been re-accredited with Platinum status – it is testament to the amazing team we have here caring for our residents.”
The Gold Standards Framework Centre provides expert training for frontline staff in health and social care, to enable a ‘gold standard’ of care for people nearing end of life.
Julie Armstrong-Wilson, Lead Nurse for GSF said: “Congratulations to all organisations that have successfully achieved accreditation and reaccreditation. Witnessing so many centres signing up to learn more and gain GSF accreditation so they too can support people at the end of life is fantastic to see.”
