The two Marie’s certainly work well as a team!

A Voice & a Choice for Gold Standard Park House

Staff and visitors gathered at Park House to join in celebrating the Gold Award received earlier this year. 

It was a great learning curve for us all from the outset but we achieved to become the first nursing care home in Nottingham City to gain The Gold Standard for Care Home Accreditation.


Care Home Manager Jacqui Inglis explained what the gold standard entailed and what it meant for both staff and residents.

It has ensured that our residents have a voice and a choice and the benefits of advanced planning. We have reduced hospital admissions and offer excellence in symptom control.


GSFC has meant that communications with all other disciplines has occurred & all the team feel more confident, discuss the needs of residents & GSFC is at the centre of care for us.

We have a proactive approach,improved knowledge and are able to observe the signs quicker & react accordingly so that people can be as comfortable as possible during their final hours.

It is a team and family approach including us all - kitchen staff, laundry staff, care staff, nursing etc


'Everyday wishes count' & residents are able to have an everyday wish list with things we can facilitate for them. We can .


'Park House is the Best Place for Care in the region, its as good as you will get anywhere' said Mark Wilson

One on One Care is often needed and delivered with understanding by Park House Staff




Mark Wilson (End of Life Care Facilitor - right) detailed what he had seen during the process of achieving the accreditation;

So much work has gone into achieving the Gold Standard by all the staff at every level. The nursing staff took it on board and committed from the outset and the non-qualified staff ensured that it was implemented as part of daily practice. Staff have always shown an interest and a desire to improve and the careful planning implemented means the best quality of care is offered.

Park House is where the residents choose to be as their last place of stay which is a great accolade.


You only have to read the cards of thanks from relatives, where their loved ones have spent their last days with us, to understand that they receive the ultimate care and consideration right up to the end.


'To each and everyone of the lovely staff at Park House, thank you for looking after our Mum Lorna, for the short time she was with you'
