Gold Standards Framework

North London Hospice is a regional Gold Standards Framework (GSF) centre offering the ‘GSF in Care Homes’ training programme. The Gold Standards Framework Care Homes programme (GSFCH) is the UKs largest and most comprehensive training programme for providing end-of-life care.

Every organisation involved in providing end-of-life care will be expected to adopt a coordinated process, such as Gold Standards Framework

 Department of Health, End-of-Life Care Strategy 2008

Our aims

  • To improve the quality of care for those living in care homes, in line with their preferences
  • To help homes develop better collaboration and coordination of care across boundaries
  • Improve outcomes and cost effectiveness, reduce hospitalisation, and enable more residents to live and die well in their care home

How we deliver this

The GSFCH training programme consists of four full-day workshops and two half-day ones. It is a step-by-step process in three key stages:

  1. Preparation
  2. Training
  3. Accreditation against 20 quality standards
