The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Care Home Training Programme

Arthur Rank Hospice is one of the Regional Centres delivering the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) in the East of England led by our healthcare educators.  The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) helps staff deliver a ‘gold standard of care’ to residents as they near the end of their lives. This leading UK quality improvement programme, now updated, will run over 6 months, with the opportunity to apply for a recognised GSF Accreditation Quality Hallmark Award. 

We invite applications from care and nursing homes to join our 2018/19 GSF Programme to commence in Sep 2018.  Applications should be received by 31 August 2018.  For more information or to request an application form contact The Education Team or call us on 01223 675780.


Library Services

Our library has an extensive collection of books, journals, reports and audiovisual material on all aspects of palliative and end of life care.  There is also a range of resources for patients, carers and their families.  Non-members are welcome to use the library for reference purposes and may photocopy or print items of interest (charges apply). With both study space and an informal seating area, learners attending courses at Arthur Rank Hospice are encouraged to use the library for relaxation, study and reflection.
