AHSN network for the North West Coast

2/3rds funded by NHS England. 1/3rd funded by industry. They act as brokers in the system and are not tied to any particular side.

There is a local board made up of 45 people including patient, government, clinical and industry representatives. They will take innovations and try to help scale them within the NHS by building products into pathways. They link to the NIA – National Innovation Accelerator. This can then lead to products going on the NHS tariff’s and ultimately saving lives.

This is a map of what they do:

They have scouts who help to champion various innovations:

Then then use bags to carry around innovations to perform market research.
