Local groups

There are lots of groups across Barnsley involving local people with experience of living with health conditions or experience of using health services.

Here are a just a couple of groups you can get involved in:

Barnsley Cancer Action Group provide a patient voice and help us to keep patients at the heart of what we do.

It is a small group of local people that have been affected by cancer in some way and have all had different experiences, encountering good and bad aspects of the cancer journey for patients and carers. They are using this experience to support the Living With and Beyond Cancer Programme in Barnsley by working alongside Barnsley Hospital, the CCG, local authority and other organisations in Barnsley to ensure that all care, physically, mentally, emotionally and socially are provided to a high standard and that there is equality of care throughout Barnsley. Click here for contact details.

OASIS is the group of young people who get involved in promoting mental health and wellbeing.
