The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) is the most widely used end of life care quality improvement programme for frontline Care Home staff.  The new GSF Care Homes Programme is designed to help you provide residents with systematic, proactive, person-centred care which is cost-effective and improves outcomes.

GSF empowers your staff to engage in more productive working relationships with GPs and other health and social care professionals as part of integrated joined-up working.

GSF provides you with a nationally recognised kitemark for quality and is recognised by:-
Skills for care as an Excellent Provider, Care England, National Care Forum, National Care Association and Registered Nursing Home Association and by the Care Quality Commission.

The programme runs over 6 months and is delivered at Birmingham St Mary's Hospice.
