Partners' shared approach delivers better care
by Professor Gary Ford, Chief Excutive, Oxford AHSN
The pace and scale of collaboration in the Oxford Academic Health Science Network region is accelerating. Our partners – across the NHS, academia and industry – achieved much during 2015
, working together and supported by the core AHSN team, to make our region a healthier place to live.
Our latest quarterly report
covers the three months to the end of December 2015 and includes case studies on a new programme bringing patients and clinicians together to improve care (p4), early intervention improving youth mental health services and cutting costs (p6) and improving NHS staff and patient health and wellbeing through daily exercise (p8).
We are also increasingly working with other AHSNs and other regional networks. Examples include:
- Imaging with Yorkshire & Humber AHSN
- NHS innovators visit to 3M in Bracknell with North West Coast AHSN
The new year brings with it many exciting opportunities to strengthen this collaborative work and bring lasting patient benefits. Some of the key landmarks in 2016 are highlighted here.
We hope you will join us on this journey.
