Launched in 2015, Barnsley Healthcare Federation is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company which aims to improve and enhance the way in which primary care at scale is delivered within Barnsley.
Drawing upon the knowledge and expertise of health professionals from across the borough, our vision is to deliver a robust publicly-funded health and social care service which meets the needs of the local community.
We believe that regardless of location or need, every patient should receive the same high standard of care, at times when they need it most.
At a time when many areas of the UK face acute shortages when it comes to recruiting and retaining healthcare professionals, we understand the importance of creating opportunities to attract and retain individuals keen to build a career in the sector. We understand these challenges will not be solved overnight, but it’s one of the reasons why education remains at the heart of our offering: Creating opportunities to help nurture and retain the skills needed by dedicated healthcare professionals to deliver a service which we can all be proud of.
Our unique, collaborative approach brings together professionals from across Barnsley’s healthcare sector, helping us to the foundations to meet the needs of patients living and working in the borough, reduce pressure on accident and emergency admissions and build a service of which provides a holistic approach to care services which are provided by NHS practices.
