A note from our Chair 

2021-22 has been pivotal for the AHSNs and the AHSN Network. While we are still supporting our health and care systems with the recovery from the pandemic, we have undertaken work to set out our vision and strategy and refine our processes to ensure we can meet our collective ambition to transform as many lives as possible through more rapid uptake of high value innovation in health and care.

This report reflects our national AHSN Network priorities and our impacts within these areas of work.

I’d like to thank all my colleagues from across the Network and our partners for their continued support this year. We know that team working is key to health system transformation and our achievements are only possible together.

Professor Gary Ford CBE, FMedSci
Chair of the AHSN Network and Chief Executive of Oxford AHSN
