Oxford AHSN region map

The Oxford Academic Health Science Network (Oxford AHSN) gets innovation into clinical practice to improve patient safety, outcomes and experience through collaboration between the NHS, industry and universities.

We aim to deliver best health for our population and prosperity for our region – a population of three million living in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and Oxfordshire.

The NHS spends £5bn a year in this region and employs 65,000 people, predominantly in 11 NHS trusts and six clinical commissioning groups. The Oxford AHSN region is also home to nine universities, 12 local authorities and four local enterprise partnerships. We also work with four Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships and four Integrated Care Systems.

The Oxford AHSN is one of 15 AHSNs created in 2013. The AHSNs’ initial five-year licence was renewed by NHS England in 2018 to run until at least 2023 with AHSNs seen as the key innovation arm of the NHS.
