Accountable Care Shadow Delivery Board

Barnsley Health and Care Together is the partnership of local organisations working to improve the health and social care system in Barnsley: NHS Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group, Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation TrustBarnsley Healthcare Federation, Barnsley Council and South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Partners are also working with Healthwatch Barnsley and other local community groups.

This way of working integrates health and care services, bringing the services of GPs, nursing, social care, mental health, the hospital, community based services and voluntary organisations into a more joined up system that focuses on the individual needs of local people and provides them with support to manage their own care.

Putting people at the centre

A simpler, integrated health and care system will support a shift in focus on how we offer services. There will be an emphasis on supporting people to maintain good physical and mental health and preventing ill health all aimed at improving outcomes for local patients:

  • With services in different organisations working together better and in a more integrated ways
  • By removing barriers they may have faced previously, whether that was in having to repeat information on every visit, or barriers due to processes or finance
  • Patients should be able to see familiar staff faces that are connected to each other across local services regardless of where they are seen, whether that is in hospital, in the community or at home
  • Patients and their families will be supported by what feels like “one team”, each delivering their part without duplication.
