Camelot House and Lodge in Wellington, Somerset has been recognised for its End of Life Care at the 2017 Care Focus South West Awards.
The award for clinical lead Alison Southcott and her team recognises those who have demonstrated outstanding excellence and commitment within their field of work or community.
Camelot Care’s operations manager, Clare Woodhead, said: “We couldn’t be more pleased for Alison and her team because this accolade is so very well deserved.
“The award represents the culmination of many peoples’ year-on-year efforts to provide excellent end of life care.
“We understand only too well that when it comes to end of life care we have just one chance to get it right, and all the preparation we do to deliver the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) goals feeds into providing the best chance of making totally sure we do get it right for the people we support and their families.”
Alison and her team last year achieved GSF ‘Beacon’ status for their service for the second time running.
She is now preparing to be a GSF ambassador working with homes new to the framework to help them establish best practice and prepare for their accreditation.
