MP Dan Jarvis has said he will listen to and support Barnsley Hospital staff following a recent visit.

Mr Jarvis met with staff in the occupational therapy department to discuss the care they provide to patients.

He also met staff from sexual health services and the XRay department.

The MP said: "The staff at Barnsley Hospital do a fantastic job and it’s always great to be able to talk to them personally about their work and the challenges they face. Our local community relies on their commitment and professionalism.

“So, given the current pressures on the NHS from national government, I believe it’s more important than ever that I listen to their concerns and try and support them however I can.”
