MORE cash is to be ploughed into improving services for cancer, cardiovascular disease, long-term health conditions, mental health and maternity care in Barnsley.

Barnsley has secured an extra £13.2 million in the health budget which the local Clinical Commissioning Group will target at key areas.

Mark Wilkinson, chief officer of Barnsley CCG, said: "We welcome the news on budget we will receive over the next two years.

"We recognise however that pressures on budgets continue and we're working closely with partners to get the best value and health outcomes for Barnsley patients."
