Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) are member led organisations within the NHS. There are 15 AHSNs in England and they were created in 2013 with the aim of bringing together health services, academia and industry to promote and support innovation to improve patient outcomes and generate economic benefits. Wessex AHSN covers Hampshire, Dorset, South Wiltshire and the Isle of Wight.
Led by a core executive and strategic team providing direction and oversight, the AHSN governance at every level is designed to involve our partners, spanning universities, NHS Trusts, community care organisations, commissioners, patient groups, industry and government.
