Antibiotic resistance is not a distant threat but is in fact one of the most dangerous global crisis facing the world today. Taking antibiotics when you don't need them puts you and your family at risk of developing infections which cannot be easily treated with antibiotics. Without urgent action from all of us, common infections, minor injuries and routine operations will become much riskier.
We urge patients with long-term health conditions, pregnant women, children aged 2-3 years and over 65 years, to have a flu vaccination to help 'stay well this winter'.
Barnsley CCG as an organisation have a responsibility for planning and buying healthcare to ensure that the people who live in the borough have access to the right type of services locally.
We have been working with our local GP Practices over the past year to put in place a change to how patients order their repeat prescriptions and we’d like your views and comments on this to help us to determine how effective this work has been.
All of the information that you provide will be kept private and confidential and your details will not be shared.

(9am - 4pm, Monday to Friday)
The i-HEART service was initially developed in 2015 to provide extended access to Primary Care services to patients registered with a Barnsley-based GP. The aim of the services was to deliver improved access medical advice, resulting in improved health outcomes.
However, we also recognise some areas of the service no longer address the needs of our patients. Our priority continues to be the delivery of safe and effective care however based on our review findings we do not feel the current telephone triage service being delivered by i-HEART meets all of these fundamental requirements.
So please note i-HEART is changing. We have introduced a number of new measures which will change the way in which the service is delivered. The following changes will come into effect from Monday 1st October 2018.
- Patients registered with a Barnsley GP can access the i-HEART service by calling the telephone number 01226 242419 between 4.00pm – 6.00pm Monday to Friday and 8.00am – 9.30am during weekends and on Bank Holidays.
- The i-HEART have evening clinic times between 6.30pm -10.30pm Monday-Friday and 10.00am - 1.00pm during the weekend and bank holiday.
- Patients requiring non-emergency medical attention should call their GP in the first instance or NHS 111 outside of the i-HEART opening hours.
Our next Patient Panel Group is on 19th June 2019 at 2.00pm at Sheffield Road Surgery - please come along and join our patient group and have your say.

When to order your repeat prescriptions
We recommend ordering your repeat medications 7 -10 days before your supply is due to run out.
This gives enough time for us to issue your repeat prescription and time for you to collect or have your items delivered from your pharmacist. We work with you and your pharmacist to ensure you get your items safely and on time.
