Eastern Academic Health Science Network is one of 15 health networks (AHSNs) set up by NHS England to spread innovation at pace and scale across the healthcare system – in order to achieve the ultimate goals of both improving health and generating economic growth.
We are the only bodies that connect all partners across sectors: NHS and academic organisations, local authorities, the third sector and industry. We are catalysts that work to create the right conditions to facilitate change across whole health and social care economies, improving outcomes for patients:
• We spread innovation at pace and scale to achieve our twin goals of improving health and generating economic growth.
• We deliver benefits to our members - and therefore citizens and patients - by creating productive partnerships between the NHS and industry, academia and social care.
• We are supporting the NHS to deliver a step-change in the rapid identification, adoption and spread of best practice, clinical innovations and new technologies to meet the challenges set out in the Five Year Forward View.
• We enable companies to grow and create jobs by helping the NHS and industry engage more productively, focused on proven innovations that meet defined local needs.
