The 'Food Inspection Report' by the Food Standards Agency is just as you would expect from any restaurant or Take-A-Way looking at good practice and hygiene in the the preparation of food. The Local Authority Inspection is that carried out by Nottinghamshire County Council to ensure that the highest standards are being achieved.

Dementia Quality Mark

The Dementia Quality Mark (DQM) was introduced to set the standard for high-quality dementia care in older people’s care homes within Nottinghamshire.

It is awarded to care homes that have evidenced that they provide a high standard of care to people living with dementia. Criteria that the homes have to meet to achieve the award include: having a positive attitude towards dementia, allowing people with dementia emotional and physical freedom, ensuring daily routines are carried out, and providing meaningful activities and stimulation.

Gold Standards Framework

The National Gold Standards Framework (GSF) Centre in End of Life Care is the national training and coordinating  centre for all GSF programmes, enabling  generalist front line staff to provide  a gold standard of care for people nearing the end of life.

GSF improves the quality, coordination and organisation of care leading to better patient outcomes in line with their needs and preferences and greater cost efficiency through reducing hospitalisation.
