The hospice has been given the award for the third time.

The framework is a model that enables good practice to be available to all people reaching the end of their lives, irrespective of their diagnosis.

It enables early recognition of patients with life-limiting conditions, helping them plan ahead to live as well as possible to the end of their life.

Lakelands Hospice nurse manager Tracy Glen said: “We pride ourselves at Lakelands Hospice in the high quality care we provide and GSF enables us to provide more structure to what we do.
