About Annie Barr Associates

After a 35 year career in the NHS and frustrated by the lack of access to high quality education and professional development, Annie established Annie Barr Associates. 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 Associates 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.

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.
Jackie Routley, Bromley CCG
Your service from start to finish has been exemplary and on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level that exceeds all other training providers I have dealt with.
Nav Chappell, Ministry of Defence
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.
