The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) supports the health and care system to accelerate innovation which improves people’s health and the regional economy.

We work with our Member Organisations including the NHS Trusts, CCGs and Universities across the NENC to help them identify, evaluate, adopt and disseminate transformative innovation. We work a lot with industry too, as a source of innovation and also to help industry access the expertise within the NHS that is so crucial to the development, testing and deployment of products and services that are the basis of the UK’s Life Sciences sector.
