One of England’s 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) who operate as the key innovation arm of the NHS. They "broker innovative solutions, while collaborating across England to take what works best and quickly spread it nationally".
Assist all healthcare innovators, including individuals, companies, the public sector and universities to introduce innovative solutions to the NHS.
They are designed to support NHS and social care commissioners and staff who are considering using new medical devices and other medical or diagnostic technologies. The briefings will help avoid the need for organisations to produce similar information locally, saving staff time and resources.
