Who we are
We are one of 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) in England.
We're a membership organisation working for NHS, higher education, local government and industry organisations in Kent, Surrey and Sussex to spread innovation, improve health and generate economic growth.
- We are catalysts for the spread of innovation at pace and scale - improving health, generating economic growth and helping facilitate change across whole health and social care economies.
- We connect regional networks of NHS and academic organisations, local authorities, the third sector and industry - responding to the diverse needs of our patients and populations through partnership and collaboration.
- We create the right environment for relevant industries to work with the health and social care system.
Our members have supported our establishment as a social enterprise, managed by a board of directors and a core support team serving our members.
