About us

Our History

Helping you to focus on what you do best

BFS has over 40 years heritage in providing high quality estates, facilities, procurement services and outpatient pharmaceutical services to the healthcare sector, we became a BFS team in 2012 (having formally traded as BHSS Ltd), and operate as a wholly owned subsidiary to Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

At the same time, we have seen our business grow by over 20% to circa £40m turnover, the team size more than doubling to over 420 colleagues and providing over £10.5m of financial contribution back into the NHS to date, supporting front line patient services.

Our ambition

Our next step remains focussed on continuing to drive up the value of our contribution to the NHS – through innovating, maintaining high quality, expanding the breadth of services offered and targeting sales in new markets. We explain a little more here [insert link], in our vision and values.

2020-2025 will see BFS continuing to invest in our team, systems and processes – we fundamentally believe in empowering and sustaining a motivated workforce – and are proud to be a team that does the right thing, not just anything, so our focus will remain in and around the services we know best.
