Cornmill Nursing Home in Garstang has repeated its Gold Standards Framework success.
Cornmill is dedicated to providing the best possible care for all its residents and has been recognised with a major national award – for the third time.
Cornmill is one of a handful of homes from across the UK to have achieved and retained the highest level of award, Beacon Status for the second consecutive time.
The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) is a systematic, evidence based approach to optimising care for all residents approaching the end of life delivered by care staff.
Liz Brotherton, matron, Sandra Connolly, GSF co-ordinator, and George Hill, owner/director, received the award in London on Friday.
The awards were presented by John Young, NHS England National Clinical Director for Integration and Frail Elderly.
Matron Liz said: “I am very appreciative for the invaluable support we have received from our own staff and the staff of all our multi-disciplinary health colleagues as well as the GSF support team.”
George said: “We are thrilled at retaining the BEACON status – it is great recognition for all the hard work staff have undertaken in improving care for our residents.”
