Locala was appointed as the first regional training centre for the Gold Standards Framework Care Homes (GSFCH) programme in the North of England in 2013. Macmillan Nurse Specialists who are also GSF clinical associates work with Care Homes leading the GSFCH programme.

Although appointed a Regional Centre in 2013 we have been delivering GSFCH open programmes from 2008 with Care Home Coordinators traveling from as far as Liverpool and Durham to attend the GSFCH workshops.

Education and professional development is central to the service we deliver at Locala complementing clinical services with our values of Be caring... Be inspirational... Be part of it.. at the heart of everything we do.

We support care homes by delivering the training required to empower staff to deliver the best End of Life Care to their residents and families. Accompanying the training will be local facilitation and telephone/skype/face to face liaison with experienced Palliative Care Nurses.
