How the system can make the most of the unique role of specialist hospitals.
We are one of 15 Academic Health Science Networks in England, focussed on spreading innovations and improvements which benefit patients, the population and health and care services.
We have offices in Daresbury, Liverpool and Preston and our teams work with partners to deliver transformation and improvement in healthcare. We also deliver support to small and medium sized businesses whose healthcare products have potential to achieve improvements. This is largely delivered through ERDF funding.
Our work is overseen by a Board of partners who help to shape our plans, provide insight into the needs of the region and act as our ambassadors for innovation.
Nationally, we are commissioned by NHS England, NHS Improvement and the Office for Life Sciences and we work closely with the AHSN Network to deliver national programmes of work to achieve rapid uptake of innovations proved to have an impact, across the country.
