Gold Standards Framework

Gold Standards Framework

At HFHC Healthcare we are passionate about providing the highest level of care and support whilst also driving up standards in the Health and Social Care sector. Currently several of our staff are progressing towards becoming Gold Standards accredited trainers, with support team members also working towards their Gold Standards certifications.

The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) is a nationally recognised accreditation which aims to promote the very best standards of care and support across the health and social care sector.

As well as ensuring the very best level of care, The Gold Standards Framework is proactive – training staff to understand and support an individual’s healthcare needs and their preferences and choices. This includes pre-empting and noticing signs which may lead to changes in a person’s needs and support before they become more serious. It is ensuring that the right conversations take place and advanced care plans are created and implemented to support individuals (and their families) throughout their time in care and beyond.

Originally created as a framework for Palliative care, this approach is being adapted by the team at HFHC Healthcare, to ensure everything we do – from complex care and learning disability support to mental health support – embraces the same industry leading standards to make a real difference to the people we support.

What does this mean to me?

This means the care we provide will be industry leading, meeting the ‘gold standard’ level of care.
