About us

We are Health and Care Working Together in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw. We are 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.

We’re made up of NHS organisations, local authorities and key voluntary sector and independent partners in our region. Through working together, we have been chosen by NHS England as one of the first areas of the country to become an accountable care system.

An accountable care system is another way of describing the ambition we have locally, supported by our patients and staff, to ensure health and care services are the best they can possibly be. Working together in this way means that 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.
