A nursing home in Northampton has become the first in the county to receive a top award relating to its standard of care.

Symphony Care Home in Queens Park Parade won the national Gold Standard Framework certificate for its end of life care.

Manager Derren Weeks said the home had been working on the framework for two years and received the highest standard of award.

He said: “Lots of homes in Northamptonshire did a lot of good work to raise the standards of care for people, especially those at the end of their life.”
