“Congratulations to all the organisations who have successfully achieved accreditation and in receipt of the Quality Hallmark Award this year. The care and compassionate culture that has been observed is truly inspiring, this shows a commitment to ensuring people receive the right care at the right time and the positive impact this has on the people cared for and their families. Listening to what matters most to each and every individual and delivering care in accordance with their goals, wishes and preferences is what everyone should receive.

Within the awards there are a number of organisations that have demonstrated their sustainability of GSF multiple times with one of the homes achieving GSF Accreditation five times. The GSF team are so very proud of all our Award Winners, with our ageing population it is so important we enable them to live well and when the time comes deliver quality care in their final year / days of life, well done to you all!”
