The Govan based care home, Florence House has been awarded an ‘Eat Safe’ Certificate. It shows that the establishment not only meets standards of food hygiene as legally required, but it offers even higher standards. The award is administered by Local Authority Environmental Health Services in conjunction with the Food Standards Agency. Florence House was assessed for the award as part of its scheduled food hygiene inspections.
The converted school building has 55 en suite rooms and three self-contained flats which are highly sought after. It is run by Lambhill Court Ltd which has several care homes in the group. Said Managing Director Sunita Poddar: ‘We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded this sign of excellence in standards of food hygiene. It’s wonderful to have such a great team across the company’s care homes and to receive recognition for their hard work. We are thrilled and thank everyone involved for all their hard work.’
Said Florence House’s home manager Joan Sands: ‘We believe that great people drive our success and I would like to thank all our staff who take great pride in delivering a quality service to all of the people we look after.’
Mrs Poddar added: ‘This award has made what was already a good year into a great year. We have retained our Investors In People (IIP) status for another year and our Head Chef, George Gray won Scottish Care’s Nutrition & Eating Well award on November 18.’
