The West of England Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) is helping to deliver positive healthcare outcomes in the region and nationally by driving the development and adoption of new innovations and enabling patients to play an increasing role in their own care and of others. In doing so the impact of our work is far reaching: from enhancing patient wellbeing, saving lives and mitigating high risk incidents such as strokes; to enhancing efficiencies in healthcare practice and boosting the local economy through private sector collaborations. Find out more about us.
We work alongside a range of partners – health service providers, care professionals, commissioners, service users, the general public, businesses, universities and other research bodies – to act upon healthcare challenges and opportunities for the ultimate benefit of the patient.
Participate in our skills programme, work with our business connections on new ideas and gain critical care insights from the evidence base we are developing.
We want to hear about your innovations which can help meet future healthcare challenges.
