Tenders, procurement and contracts

NHS Barnsley CCG is responsible for commissioning and procuring – or buying – healthcare services from hospitals and other providers, to meet the needs of local people.

This involves contracting with existing service providers and, when required, carrying out competitive tendering processes - for example, when we think that this would allow us to improve services for patients, or when we are legally bound to do so because of procurement regulations.

The CCG has a clear responsibility to make decisions and commission services in a fair, transparent and open way, to ensure we are getting value for money and meeting the needs of our population. We want the people of Barnsley to have a wide range of accessible, high quality and easy to use services to help them stay healthy and improve their wellbeing.

Commissioners must publish details of contract sanctions due and applied to each of their major providers for failure to achieve national standards. You can view contracts awarded for Barnsley CCG under "Publications" or by clicking here.

We are continually looking at the services we commission, to find ways to improve efficiency and quality, extend choice and access, and improve patient experience.

We involve local residents and people who have used the services and carers in the whole commissioning process. This includes recruiting people to be part of the procurement process, helping assess any bids we receive. If you would like to sign up for more information and regular newsletters on how to get involved in future procurement assessments please email barnnccg.comms@nhs.net with your name and email.
