“We were particularly impressed with the registered manager’s commitment to providing quality and responsive care to people using this service and empowering staff to do the same.

“Residents and relatives told us repeatedly about what an excellent service this was and how management and staff often go above and beyond to ensure their needs are met.

“This is a real achievement for the whole team at Belsfield House, and a great example of what Outstanding care should look like.”

The home was rated Outstanding for being effective, caring, responsive and well-led and Good for being safe.

Belsfield House recently received the top ‘Beacon’ award from the national training and co-ordinating centre, for its end of life care.
