Working For Us

Working with Barnsley CCG

NHS Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group represents 36 GP practices and over 230,000 patients. We have responsibility in partnership with local organisations and providers for commissioning good quality, cost effective, health and care services for the population of Barnsley including: hospital care; rehabilitation care; urgent and emergency care, most community health services, mental health; and learning disability services.

The CCG is committed to becoming an employer of excellence, offering good working conditions and wide ranging training and development opportunities.

Our teams are leading the way  to improve the outcomes for people across Barnsley, working with some great partner organisations. We are a national pioneer for an integrated approach to care and we are one of only eight sites across the country to launch integrated personal commissioning.

In 2015 our local GP federation was successful in receiving Prime Minister's Challenge funding with their ambitious and innovative approach to seven-day services in Barnsley. We also took on full responsibility for commissioning GP primary care services in April 2015.
