National programme of innovations

AHSNs work locally and nationally through the AHSN Network.

Each AHSN is embedded in its regional health and care community, understanding the system and the needs of the population.

Through the national AHSN Network we are part of a unique collaborative of expertise and experience; sharing learning, pooling intelligence and supporting a pipeline of emerging and proven solutions from around the country.

Together, we are rolling out a programme of innovations on behalf of our national NHS commissioners, to benefit our regions. The nationally spread innovation programmes include products and practices which have evidence of impact and are ready for adoption.
