About Annie Barr

After a 35 year career in the NHS and frustrated by the lack of access to high quality education and professional development, Annie established her training and consultancy services. Her aim was to improve the confidence and competence of the healthcare workforce and consequently patient care.

Since then the company has gone from strength to strength, and Annie Barr is now a leading provider of accredited healthcare training and consultancy in the UK and overseas.

Our engaging, face-to-face courses are both practical and theoretical, equipping you or your workforce with the skills, knowledge and competence needed to provide compassionate and high quality care.

Our comprehensive consultancy services provide strategic support to healthcare organisations looking to strengthen the quality of their healthcare delivery and patient care.

Client Testimonials

I felt I had to send you a quick e-mail this morning about the [Effective Telephone Skills + Conflict Management for Receptionists] course which most of my staff attended yesterday afternoon. They thought it was very useful and pertinent to their job. They felt it was a refreshing change to have someone presenting the course who not only knew what they were talking about, but had first hand experience. Top marks should go to the trainer.
Practice Manager, Effective Telephone Skills + Conflict Management for Receptionists
I am highly impressed by the excellent results produced by my colleague throughout the training period. I expect this exceptional achievement will be reflected in his performance as a carer by implementing the knowledge he has gained in all activities.
Care Certificate Assessor
We commissioned a programme of courses for receptionists and administrative staff and found them to be well run, professional and led by excellent tutors. Our staff returned with more confidence and their performance improved. We will be using Annie Barr Associates again.
