The Oxford Academic Health Science Network is one of 15 AHSNs licensed and funded by NHS England. The Oxford AHSN is hosted by Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH). This arrangement provides support across all activities, including HR, finance and other infrastructure support. The funds reach the Oxford AHSN through the OUH and the work of the Oxford AHSN is governed by the policies and procedures of the OUH.
The chief executive of the OUH is the deputy chairman of the Oxford AHSN Board.
There are three main elements to our governance arrangements:
- Oxford AHSN Board (supported by oversight groups)
- Oxford AHSN Partnership Board
- Oxford AHSN Partnership Council
