Gold Standard Framework

The Gold Standards Framework

The Gold Standards Framework Care Homes (GSFCH) Training Programme is a 3 stage quality assurance programme that enables care homes to provide quality care for all residents nearing the end of life. By implementing improved coordination and better organisation GSF helps care homes deliver better patient outcomes in line with their needs and preferences.

The GSFCH Training Programme provides for:
Quality improvement, quality assurance, and quality recognition.
The allowing of more clients to pass away peacefully in their own care home without traumatic and unnecessary hospital transfers and admissions.
Care home system changes and education to ensure better end of life and palliative care outcomes for clients.
The accreditation of Homes leading to a Quality Hallmark Award, and to be included in a national database, with national recognition for their achievement and membership of a Solid Gold Club with numerous benefits that support continued recognition.

Royal Bay Care Homes Ltd is actively pursuing GSF accreditation with all of their homes in the Care Group. GSF has been promoted in 'phases' across various U.K. regions and this has allowed Royal Bay to take advantage of the GSFCH Training Programme when accessible. The three Dorset homes have full GSF accreditation. Our other five homes are all now engaged in the GSF accreditation process. The individual homes' progress is as follows:

  • Dorset. All three of our Homes, Larks Leas, Blandford, Castle Farm, nr Poole, and Forest Hill House, nr Poole, have all achieved the highest award of 'Beacon Status'.
  • West Sussex. Royal Bay Nursing Home and Royal Bay Residential Home, Bognor Regis, have passed the 'Quality Hallmark Award'; meanwhilst Claremont Lodge, Fontwell, have had to resubmit their folder for the accreditation process.
  • Northants and Wocestershire. The Old Vicarage, at Weekly, near Kettering and Herons Park Nursing Home at Kidderminster, Worcestershire, are at advanced stages, and will be submitting in the next few months.

Our established and on-going ethos of promoting the quality of client care in all areas is borne out by our homes' commitments to achieving their Solid Gold Club memberships.
