Lancaster surgery given gold award
Lancaster's King Street Surgery and the Lancaster University Medical practice have been awarded the Gold Standards Framework Quality Hallmark Award for outstanding end of life care for the second time.
The surgery which looks after nearly 20,000 patients is the largest practice in Lancaster and first received this national award back in 2012.
Professor Keri Thomas, Clinical Director of the National GSF Centre, said: “The team at King Street has demonstrated a real passion for providing quality care for patients approaching the end of their lives. They are helping these patients live their final months in the place and manner of their choosing, through better planning, communication and coordination.”
