Gold and Silver Awards for Hica

North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group quality standards was set up in 2013, following the Government’s health reforms, and is made up of 30 GP practices and care homes in Grimsby and Cleethorpes. The CCG rated the care homes against 14 criteria, over and above the national standards set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The homes underwent a rigorous assessment and were identified as being among the most people-centred and focused on keeping residents healthy and happy.
Bev Milson, Manager of The Anchorage, said: “This year we achieved six areas of excellence as opposed to one last year – so we are all really thrilled!” The Anchorage also celebrated achieving Outstanding in care after their CQC inspection earlier this year. These achievements underpin Hica’s Shine ethos - our aspirational philosophy that underpins our organisational commitment to continuous improvement and our personal pledge to ‘make a difference’.
She added “Our ethos has always been to provide the highest quality of care for our older generation. We pride ourselves on making a difference to people with Dementia ensuring they have a better quality of life whilst maintaining their own skills and independence. Everyone who works at The Anchorage is proud of the work they do and it really makes all the effort the staff put in, and the investment from Hica, all the more worthwhile to get this recognition."
Talking about Alderlea, Regional Director Terry Peel said, "This is brilliant news. Hica have invested a lot in the last year in Alderlea and staff have been committed to the Hica philosophy of making a positive difference to the lives of our residents. We are overjoyed to see this being recognised by the CCG."
