St Vincent’s wins gold award

Home news

St Vincent’s was one of just 35 homes from all over the country to be recognised for its gold standard end of life care at an awards ceremony in London.

More than 1000 care homes have now completed or embarked on the National Gold Standards Framework for Care Homes Training Programme (GSFCH), a national programme designed to enable quality care in care homes for people nearing the end of their lives.

Kevin Henry, our manager, said: “We’re delighted. This award really demonstrates that the care we provide is of the highest standard. All of our staff have worked extremely hard over the last 15 months and participated in a huge amount of training. This exciting award reflects their dedication.”

Professor Keri Thomas, Gold Standard Framework National Clinical Lead, said: “We are aiming to develop a national momentum of excellence, with homes aspiring to this high standard of care, the ‘gold standard’ for people nearing the end of life.

“We now have a group of fantastic care homes that have lead the way in pioneering this work, and can show others in real and practical ways the quality of care that be achieved. We can see the real practical changes made in patterns of working, improved outcomes for residents but also the change in morale and confidence of staff- some even say this is ‘life changing’ for them.”
