Best Care Programme

The Oxford AHSN Best Care programme aims to:

  • Identify and tackle unwarranted variation in patient outcomes across our region
  • Spread best practice by establishing an AHSN standard of care
  • Raise this standard of care by encouraging and facilitating the adoption of clinical use of innovation
  • Train the clinical leaders of tomorrow in partnership with Health Education England (Thames Valley) and the University of Oxford.

As it prepares for a new licence from NHS England starting in 2018, the Oxford AHSN is developing alternative approaches and models to support clinical engagement, to deliver innovation adoption and support system transformation across a broader range of clinical specialties.

These changes will align future work programmes to national priorities and expectations. As a result the AHSN was unable to sustain funding of the clinical networks beyond July 2017. Five networks secured external funding enabling them to continue until March 2018. Three networks – Children, Medicines Optimisation and Respiratory – closed by 30 June 2017.

Children’s Network produces three new reports

The Oxford AHSN Children’s Network produced three new reports in June 2017. They are a third regional variation report, harmonised paediatric antibiotic prescribing guidelines and a new model for delivering the children’s flu vaccine.
