How is the AHSN Network supporting the response to COVID-19?
Our partners across the NHS and social care are mobilising at scale in response to the developing COVID-19 pandemic. The AHSN Network's role, along with England’s 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs), is to support them by helping them take full advantage of the most relevant innovations and technologies that can improve care for patients and support our services in this challenging context.
Nationally, the AHSN Network is part of a coordinated NHS response to identify and enable the implementation of technologies that respond to areas of highest priority action, in particular solutions for remote consultation and patient monitoring, diagnostics and point-of-care testing.
If you are a company or an innovator with a potential COVID-19 related solution, the AHSN Network has shared direct links to the relevant agencies who are coordinating the national effort. Please see details and how to get in touch.
Regional AHSN support
During this current period of extreme operational pressure, the AHSNs will be supporting our colleagues on the frontline and in planning and operations by offering the most appropriate assistance as and when required. This will include supporting the implementation of technology to maximise the use of remote consultations and online guidance, freeing up valuable clinician time and reducing the risk of transmission.
We are working closely with our regional NHS teams to coordinate this support, but if you would like to contact the Wessex team, please do get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
