PERFORMANCE: Yorkshire and Humber SHA have fully accredited Barnsley Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for the organisation’s stroke services.

According to Barnsley CCG board papers, the stroke services peer review team visited the trust in January and full accreditation for Stroke Services was awarded.  It is expected that the next formal review will be in 12 months time.

In their feedback the team emphasised that the service levels achieved need to be maintained with continued progress in areas where progress was required.  

Particular issues related to medical cover and additional medical sessions, and maintaining training records.

All trusts within North Trent are now accredited through the current Yorkshire and Humber SHA Peer Review process.
