What we do

We work on a range of projects to support the development, spread and adoption of innovation for the health and care system.

Academic Health Science Networks have unique cross-sector connections, which enable us to identify common challenges and quickly bring people and organisations together to develop, test and spread solutions.

We help NHS organisations build partnerships with clinicians and researchers, businesses, charities and social enterprises to test, develop and adopt innovation into their organisations.

We are commissioned by NHS England to spread a number of national programmes across England at pace and scale. The Office for Life Sciences funds our Innovation Exchange and NHS Improvement commission the National Patient Safety Collaborative Programme, which is delivered by AHSNs.
