Barnsley one of only 20 CCGs rated Outstanding
04 September 2018

NHS Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group, which is responsible for planning and buying healthcare services for around 240,000 people registered with a GP in Barnsley, is rated as Outstanding overall by NHS England and has been recognised for its continued high standards and performance.

The CCG is one of only 20 in the country to receive an assessment of Outstanding this year.

Under NHS England’s improvement and assessment framework, all clinical commissioning groups are assessed and given a rating according to whether they are a well led organisation, on their financial performance, performance and planning. The results of the assessment have now been published online for patients to see how their local health leaders are performing in these areas.

Lesley Smith, chief officer of Barnsley CCG said:

“We are delighted to achieve our ‘outstanding’ rating. This is a testament to our commitment to improving the health services and health outcomes for everyone across the borough and the hard work of all staff to achieve this. The assessment focuses on how we are contributing towards improving the health and wellbeing of the local population, our leadership and our financial management and whether we are securing good value for patients and the public.

“This national endorsement demonstrates the confidence that people can continue to have in our commissioning of local health services."
