Welcome to the Wessex AHSN

Transforming health outcomes and the delivery of healthcare in England

Following the publication of Innovation Health and Wealth, there has been substantial interest and enthusiasm in the creation of Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) across the country.

Many people have described the potential of these networks to help transform health outcomes and the delivery of healthcare in England by bringing together the local NHS, higher education institutions and industry to focus on improving the identification, adoption and spread of innovative health care across a network.

Locally, managers, researchers and clinical leaders have started to describe their vision that the concept of a local AHSN could be taken further and bring organisations together to use improvement science to support the adoption of best practice, increase participation in research and identify new opportunities to spread the lessons from research.

Find out more about us in the AHSN Services section, and by browsing the website which includes the Wessex AHSN Prospectus and Wessex AHSN Business Plan 2014-15 (plus Appendix 2 ). You can also download and view our Wessex AHSN Introductory Leaflet.
