South West AHSN


SWAHSN logoThe South West AHSN seeks to evaluate and promote the potential health benefits of the region’s pioneering integrated healthcare models, with a focus on: frail elderly care (including dementia); urgent and acute care (including stroke prevention); long-term conditions (including diabetes, cardiovascular, rheumatology and cancer); mental health; and, through telehealth and digital technology.

They have engaged the commercial sector organisations in building multi-partner collaborations to meet the particular health challenges in the South West. These collaborations span multiple therapeutic and business areas, enhancing the relationship between the NHS and commercial organisations.

The South West are developing programmes of work to – where we uncover unmet needs – initiate a challenge-led approach to identify and support the adoption of commercial innovations from industry partners, small-medium size enterprises, social enterprises and voluntary and community sector organisations.
