Who we work with

We work with a range of health and care services in addition to working closely with the local authority, Barnsley MBC, and community and patient organisations such as HealthWatch Barnsley.

There are 32 GP practices across Barnsley, all who make up the clinical commissioning group.

The Barnsley Primary Care Network is hosted by Barnsley Healthcare Federation.  NHS primary care networks, or PCNs, are groups of GP practices working closely together - along with other healthcare staff and organisations - providing integrated services to the local population. 

Here are some of the providers of local health services in Barnsley include South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Barnsley Healthcare Federation and Barnsley Hospice

We are also partners in a wide range of networks and boards across the borough and region.

We are members of:

  • Barnsley Health and Wellbeing Board

  • Barnsley 2030
  • South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System

  • South Yorkshire's Violence Reduction Unit

    The South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (ICS) is a partnership of 23 organisations responsible for looking after the health and care of the 1.5 million people living in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield. It is made up of NHS organisations (including us), local authorities and key voluntary sector and independent partners in our region.

    An Integrated Care System is another way of describing the ambition we have locally to ensure health and care services are the best they can possibly be. By working together we will be able to better join up GPs and hospitals, physical and mental healthcare, social care and the NHS and give our patients the seamless care they have told us they want.

    Through partnership working, we believe we can make real and long lasting improvements to the health of local people. As individuals and organisations working alone, we would never be able to achieve the same results.

    Our goal is simple. We want everyone in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw to have a great start in life, with the support they need to stay healthy and live longer. To find out more visit: 

    In 2017 the partners who now form the Integrated Care System published a System Transformation Plan for South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw. Following the publication of the NHS Long Term Plan earlier in 2019 partners are now working together to create a new 5 year plan, which sets out how South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw organisations will work together to help deliver the Long Term Plan in our area.

Alongside all of these services and organisations we work alongside Barnsley patients and residents. Whether it's in our day to day work in GP practices or through more formal ways, involvement in the planning, development and consideration of services and decisions is central to the way health and care services are commissioned in Barnsley.

CCG Annual Assessment - Outstanding

NHS England has a statutory duty to undertake an annual assessment of CCGs on an annual basis. Each CCG receives an overall assessment that places their performance in one of four categories: outstanding, good, requires improvement, or inadequate. The feedback received in the 360 stakeholder survey forms part of that assessment by NHS England.

Barnsley CCG has been awarded the overall rating of outstanding for 2018/19. Click here to to view the rating for Barnsley and other CCGs across the country.

360 Stakeholder Survey

Clinical commissioning groups need to have strong relationships with a range of health and care partners in order to be successful commissioners within the local system. The CCG 360 stakeholder survey has been a key part of ensuring these strong relationships are in place.

In previous years, as part of the CCG annual assurance process, NHS England commissioned IPSOS Mori to co-ordinate the survey. This survey allowed stakeholders to provide feedback on our working relationships. Stakeholders surveyed included GP member practices, the Barnsley Health and Wellbeing Board, Barnsley CVS, Healthwatch Barnsley, Barnsley Council and other NHS organisations.
