This is the highest level of award given by the Gold Standards Framework, a care quality kitemark for exceptional palliative / end of life care. Platinum status is only given to care homes which show a sustained excellence in palliative care and The Lawns has held GSF accreditation since 2013.

The Lawns was also shortlisted for GSF Care Home of the Year, as a home that has shown examples of best practice and is an inspiration to others. Melanie was asked to speak at the ceremony, which was a huge honour.

“I am so proud of Team Lawns and all they do to make a difference every day.”

Melanie Dawson

The Gold Standards Framework gives training to frontline care providers to ensure the highest quality of person-centred care in the later stages of life, to best support individual needs and wishes and also in support of families.
