Strategy and objectives

We have clear ambitions to build on previous work using continuous quality improvement, technology, and innovative ways of working, to improve our services and deliver holistic care.

Our Strategy: 2022-2027

In March 2022 we launched our strategy for 2022 to 2027. It captures the mission for the Trust and our six new strategic goals to help us achieve this. We believe this strategy will shape an exciting, new and sustainable future for our services and the people of Barnsley. 

We have clear ambitions for these five years that will build on our previous work. We will use continuous quality improvement and introduce innovative new ways of working and new technology. All of this serves to improve our services and deliver holistic care, that balances the physical and mental health needs of our patients.

Underpinning all of this work will be an active focus on our workplace culture. We strive to provide a kind, caring and compassionate environment for our patients, and staff that makes us the healthcare provider of choice for care, and the best place to work.

Our mission is simple: To provide the best possible care for the people of Barnsley and beyond at all stages of their life. Supporting this, we have extended our previous four ‘P’s’ of Patients, People, Performance and Partner to include Place and Planet
