AHSNs: Spreading innovation, improving health, generating economic growth
NHS England established 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) across England in 2013. They work together as the AHSN Network encouraging the adoption and spread of evidence-based clinical innovation to improve health and generate economic growth. Use the interactive map below to connect with all the AHSNs.
As the only bodies that connect NHS and academic organisations, local authorities, the third sector and industry, AHSNs are catalysts that create the right conditions to facilitate change across whole health and social care economies, with a clear focus on improving outcomes for patients.
AHSNs are uniquely placed to identify and spread health innovation supporting the adoption and spread of innovative ideas and technologies across large populations.
Our impact rests in our ability to bring people, resources and organisations together quickly, delivering benefits that could not be achieved alone.
