The West of England AHSN is one of 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs), established by the NHS in England during 2013 – 14 insert weblink, which includes BNSSG (Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire), Gloucestershire and BANES (Bath and Northeast Somerset). AHSNs are an important part of the ‘Innovation, Health and Wealth’ agenda, and have been established to ensure that innovation is spread at “scale and pace” with consequent benefits for the health and wealth of individuals, communities, regions and the nation. AHSNs are a critical structure for aligning the NHS, Academia and Industry, and work as ‘system integrators’. Collectively, with other AHSNs, we are catalysts, working to create the right conditions to facilitate change across our health and social care economies, improving outcomes for patients. We work as a network, bringing together innovators, expert practitioners, researchers and, most importantly, citizens and staff across health and care communities. Our role is to help create, accelerate and deploy solutions that positively impact our health and care service. By supporting and accelerating the use of innovative products and services developed in our region, we contribute to economic growth, supporting the NHS Long Term Plan to create the conditions for proven innovation to be adopted faster, in a more systematic way to improve patient outcomes. As part of the senior team, the Medical Director will provide visible, dynamic and effective clinical leadership, strategic direction and oversight for the West of England Academic Health Science Network, both internally (e.g. as a member of the Executive team and Board, and specifically by supporting the clinical leads and programme team) and externally (e.g. liaising with senior leaders in membership organisations, representing the WEAHSN at national meetings).
