A care home rated outstanding after a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection, has been chosen to play a key role in creating a national guide.

Ebury Court Care Home, Rush Green Road, Romford, achieved the high standard when the CQC report was published on Thursday, February 25, last year.

Manager Beverley Manzar, was then asked by workforce development agency Skills for Care to help create the “good and outstanding care guide” aimed at showing organisations how they can secure the coveted rating.

“We were very keen to help because we are so proud of our rating but we are also aware of how much hard work goes into getting there,” said Beverley.

According to Skills for Care, less than 1pc of care homes in the UK have been rated as ‘outstanding’.

Since 2011, Ebury Court has held the highest national award for palliative care – the Gold Standard Framework End of Life Care Award at Beacon Level.
