The West of England Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) brings together all the key players innovating health and care in our region, including health service providers, care professionals, commissioners, service users, the general public, businesses, universities and other research bodies.

Since our launch, our priority has been to work across organisational and geographical boundaries, involving our entire network in both development and delivery to drive transformation that is based on genuine need, is successfully embedded and sustainable.
Here in the West of England, our AHSN has earned a reputation for its ambitious, joined-up vision for healthcare innovation and transformation.

Ours is a whole-system, collaborative approach. We have spent considerable time growing our ‘innovation ecosystem’, connecting and brokering relationships that encompass patients and carers, industry and academia, and health and care professionals – to act upon healthcare challenges and opportunities for the ultimate benefit of the patient.
