Marie HoyleChief Executive
I joined Barnsley Healthcare Federation as CEO at the start of January 2018 and locally I’m a well-known advocate of Federated working. I bring with me a wealth of Healthcare experience in Barnsley, having worked in GP Practice Business Management, and served on the Governing Body of NHS Barnsley CCG, roles which have afforded me great insight to the potential of Federation. I am impressed by what the Federation has achieved so far and will commit to ensuring the Federation continues to develop in its support of local GP Practices and local population. I have lived in Barnsley all my life so I have a vested interest in getting the best I can deliver through this exciting opportunity.
James LockingFinance Director
I am a qualified Chartered Accountant (ACA) with several years of experience working for Private organisations that have delivered Public funded contracts, firstly in Employment but now in Healthcare. I have worked as the Finance Director of a not-for-profit social fund investor and a manufacturer too before I joined the Federation. From my first day here in March 2017, I have been impressed by the work ethic and sheer determination within the Federation to make our services the best they can be for the people of Barnsley. I hope to see the Federation become a long-term sustainable leader in Primary Care at Scale and want to make the Federation’s impact even bigger than it is today. Finally I am a proud Yorkshireman and pleased to be working in my local area.
Dr David ShuttMedical Director
I qualified from Leeds university in 2001. I first trained in surgery before training as a GP on the Pennine vocational training scheme. I have previously worked in Surgeries in Huddersfield and Halifax and have been working with the Federation in Barnsley since April 2017.
My interests are in minor surgery, carpal tunnel surgery and medical education. I am passionate about primary care and keen to explore new ways of working to meet the challenges that the health service is facing.
Sharon SwiftHead of HR
I am a self-motivated individual with a desire to succeed in anything I do. With over 25 years’ experience in HR Strategy and Leadership. My HR background is gained from me fast tracking my career progression within HR and as well as being a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), I also hold a MSc in Human Resources Management. I keep cool under pressure and demonstrate integrity; along with this I am a strong communicator and negotiator and have over 7 years direct experience of working within a unionised environment. I have a successful record of leading and managing a HR team and my ability to make sound decisions in complex situation has helped me with my career success.
James BarkerDirector of Business Development
As Director of Business Development and Strategy I am focussed on improving the way in which health care services are delivered in Barnsley. Throughout my career I have worked in a variety of roles across both the private sector and NHS. I have extensive experience of working with multiple partners to build patient focused services. For example I was instrumental in the development of the extend hours GP service, i-HEART Barnsley making sure that the service would have a positive impact for all Barnsley residents. Through the work conducted by the i-HEART development team we were successful in securing over £2 million of investment into Barnsley to create more GP and Nurse Appointments. Throughout my career in business development and service improvement I have been successful creating new opportunities and redefining the way in which teams and organisations work together. I am proud to live in Barnsley and want to ensure that the healthcare provided for resident’s places them at the center of their own care.
Andrea ParkinHead of Nursing
I am the Lead Nurse for BHCF CIC. I have more than 30 years of nursing experience in both primary and secondary care. My nursing career began in Barnsley and the town has been my home ever since. I love Barnsley and its people and I am passionate about providing excellent care for people locally. As part of my role, I support the Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) Heather Gillott strategically and operationally, as part of the senior management team. I still work clinical sessions weekly. This keeps me in touch with clinical responsibilities and focuses me on being ‘patient centred’.Among significant previous positions, I hold a Master’s Degree as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Primary Care. I was awarded a Nurse Fellowship at Barnsley CCG 18 months ago; this secondment supports leadership skills development and bringing ‘added value’ to the practice nurses of Barnsley, via nurse forum meetings and other work. I have been involved in ensuring nursing revalidation was on the agenda in primary care, to ensure nurses were informed of the new process reducing risk to practices. I have worked to ensure the provision of training to nurses. I have also facilitated training to GP Reception teams, ‘first Port of call’ (FPOC) and Resilience training to Community Nursing colleagues. This secondment will come to an end sadly next year, however, this will give me further capacity and opportunity to develop and progress BHF nursing teams. I enjoy supporting and inspiring nurses to develop new skills. This enables nurses to progress on the General Practice Nursing career pathway, to Advanced Practice, which is part of the federations plan to develop its nursing teams. The future of the Federation and its member practices relies upon developing our future generations. This is an exciting opportunity, as we move further towards federated working.
Alison SaltCorporate Governance Manager
I am the Corporate Governance Manager for the Federation. I am responsible for ensuring that the Federation has appropriate and effective systems and processes in place to achieve and maintain the highest standards of governance. I have extensive experience of working across most sectors of the NHS.

I have a BA (Hons) degree in History from the University of Nottingham and a postgraduate diploma in Health Services Management. I have worked in the Barnsley health community for the last 20 years in a number of senior management roles. As a local person who uses local health services I have a genuine interest in the provision of excellent healthcare to the population of Barnsley. I am passionate about healthcare and believe that the Federation offers a dynamic and exciting way forward in the delivery of quality primary care services and I am pleased to be working as a part of the team to deliver this.
