Kingam’s nursing home The Langston Nursing Home wins national award for providing outstanding palliative and end of life care
The Langston Nursing Home has been awarded a national Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Quality Hallmark Award for its delivery of end of life care during the pandemic.
The Award, which recognises health and social care providers delivering quality care in the final year of life, were presented at the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Conference and Awards ceremony on 7 October 2022 in London.
The Langston Nursing Home is one of 75 care homes, hospitals, hospices, primary care practices, retirement villages, and domiciliary care agencies, that received the prestigious GSF quality hallmark across the country during the ceremony.
The Gold Standards Framework Centre provides expert training for frontline staff in health and social care, to enable a ‘gold standard’ of care for people nearing end of life.
Before the pandemic hit, GSF provided face-to-face workshops, but have successfully adapted and moved online to adhere to COVID-19 regulations. The training has been a huge success and has supported both families and patients to discuss end of life care planning and what matters to them.
”GSF has given us a structure and framework that enhances the life experience for our residents, relatives, friends and the team at The Langston. We continue to support our residents to live their lives with purpose, dignity and to make sure they feel valued. GSF training is a big part of our day to day lives now and has really helped us identify how to improve the quality of life of our residents. We feel very proud and privileged to have been given this amazing award”. The Langston Nursing Home
Julie Armstrong-Wilson, Lead Nurse for GSF said: “Congratulations to all organisations that have successfully achieved accreditation and re-accreditation. The last two years have been an incredibly difficult time for all health and social care providers and taking the time to complete their GSF accreditation is to be commended. Good quality end of life care has never been more important, especially due to the impact of the pandemic we have all faced. Witnessing so many centres signing up to learn more and gain GSF accreditation so they too can support people at the end of life is fantastic to see.”

The Langston Nursing Home team is particularly concerned that each person is recognised as an individual with whom care arrangements are discussed, planned and regularly reviewed.
Our approach makes The Langston Nursing Home something very special. Not too large, we can recreate an intimate, family home feel while still providing the kind of 24 hour care expected.
