About us

The West of England Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) brings together all the key players innovating health and care in our region.

We are one of 15 AHSNs across the country, established by NHS England in 2013. Together we make up the AHSN Network.

Here in the West of England, our AHSN has earned a reputation for its ambitious, joined-up vision for healthcare innovation and transformation.

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.

With our unique expertise and cross-sector connections, we understand both the ‘push and pull’ of demand on healthcare innovation. We actively nurture an innovation ecosystem around health and care, removing obstacles and bringing diverse groups together to conceive and maximise new ways of working.
