We are pleased to share with you the first Annual Report of the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw (SYB) Acute Federation. The Acute Federation is a collaboration of the Acute Trusts across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw and the aim is that, by working more effectively together, we can improve clinical standards and the care outcomes for our patients, as well as making our organisations better places to work.

In the last twelve months the Acute Federation has overseen a range of improvements, examples of which are described in the report. We have also worked together to respond to the additional challengĀ­es and pressures imposed by Covid-19.

Our staff across the whole of South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw have been amazing and we want to take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work and dedication at such a difficult time. The spirit of collaboration that we have witnessed between our organisations throughout the pandemic demonstrates the positive benefits of working together.
