Blesma Blackpool offers gold standard care

We are jolly pleased about Blesma Blackpool being recognised for the quality of care it provides to its residents.

The team here is over the moon to have received the coveted ‘Beacon Status'

Jacqui Longden, Home Manager Blesma Blackpool

Our home in Blackpool is only one of 25 across the country to be awarded the prestigious ‘Beacon Status’ Gold Standards Framework in Care Homes Quality Hallmark Award, three years after being first recognised.

Maggie Stobbart-Rowlands, the National Lead Nurse for GSFCH added: “Homes like Blesma Blackpool are a beacon for others to follow as they are providing the right care, in the right place, at the right time, offering their residents the sort of care we would want for ourselves or our loved ones.”

Jacqui Longden, Home manager Blesma Blackpool says: “The team here is over the moon to have received the coveted ‘Beacon Status'. The recognition goes a very long way in boosting the morale of the staff here who work tirelessly to ensure the highest possible care is offered to injured veterans who served the Crown. We promise to continue to provide the best for the best.”

The Gold Standards Framework (GSF) was originally developed in 2000 to improve primary palliative care. As well as primary care, it now also provides a variety of training programmes including in Care Homes. This training improves the quality, coordination and organisation of those working in care which leads to better patient outcomes in line with their needs and preferences and greater cost efficiency through reducing hospitalisation.
