Muscliff Care Home in Bournemouth has achieved a Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Quality Hallmark Platinum Award for its delivery of end-of-life care.
The Award, which recognises health and social care providers delivering quality care in the final years of life, was presented to the nurse-led care home team at the GSF Conference and Awards ceremony on 7 October 2022 in London.
The prestigious hallmark places Muscliff in a select group of care homes, primary care settings, domiciliary care agencies and hospitals in the United Kingdom, which have been recognised for delivering the highest standards of care.
Dedrey Charles, Home Manager at the Bournemouth care home, said: “Our residents’ wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do here at Muscliff, and I’m thrilled to see our hard work recognised with this accreditation.
“To receive this award is testament to the whole team here. We’re passionate about ensuring that the highest standards of care are in place, and we are very proud of what we have achieved.”
The Gold Standards Framework is the UK’s leading training provider for frontline staff caring for people in the last years of life and has been providing training for Muscliff Care Home since 2010.
Julie Armstrong-Wilson, Lead Nurse for GSF said: “Congratulations to all organisations that have successfully achieved accreditation and reaccreditation this year. The last two years have been an incredibly difficult time for all health and social care providers and taking the time to complete their GSF accreditation is to be commended. Good quality end-of-life care has never been more important, especially due to the impact of the pandemic we have all faced. 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.”
Muscliff is part of Sears Heathcare and CEO Richard Adams said: “At Muscliff Care Home, we are a nurse-led care home, so our approach focuses on meeting the healthcare needs of our residents. I’m extremely proud of our Bournemouth team. This award recognises the high standards of care they’re all providing and their commitment to consistently providing this care throughout the Covid-crisis.”
