Barnsley Hospital is among the leading NHS trusts in the country. As a 450-bed associate teaching and research hospital affiliated with the University of Sheffield, they provide a range of high quality acute hospital services. The hospital is renowned not only for top performance but also for their friendly culture, first-rate environment and convenient location. 

Barnsley is a town in South Yorkshire, England. It lies on the River Dearne, 11.8 miles (19 km) north of the city of Sheffield, and 14.5 miles (23 km) west of Doncaster. Barnsley is surrounded by several smaller settlements which together form the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley, of which Barnsley is the largest and the administrative centre. Barnsley has a total population of over 72,000.

Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Barnsley is notable as a former industrial town centered on coal mining and glassmaking. Though these industries demised in the 20th century, Barnsley's local culture remains rooted in this industrial heritage; Barnsley has a tradition of brass bands, originally created as social clubs for its mining communities.

In recent years, Barnsley has been referred to as "The Tarn" by many of its residents. It is between junctions 36 and 38 of the M1 motorway and has a railway station served by the Hallam and Penistone Lines. Barnsley F.C. is the local football club.
