Gregory House Achieves Outstanding Rating

Gregory House

Healthcare inspectors have awarded Gregory House care home in Grantham, run by The Orders of St John Care Trust, the highest possible ranking of ‘outstanding’.

 

The Care Quality Commission’s report, published 18 December, commended Tracy Turfrey, the manager, and her staff’s commitment to person-centred care, praising the home’s ‘positive, person-centred and open culture’. Gregory House is one of fewer than 250 residential homes of over 27,000 in England to achieve this distinction.

 

The independent regulator of health and social care described Ms Turfrey as ‘inspiring and dedicated to providing care which met the highest of standards’.
