KSS AHSN is one of 15 AHSNs set up by NHS England in 2013 and relicensed from April 2018 to operate as the key innovation arm of the NHS.

Our work is all about “transforming lives through innovation”.

We understand the needs of our health system and are well placed to broker innovative solutions. We develop projects, programmes and initiatives that reflect the diversity of our region and healthcare challenges.

We are also part of the national AHSN Network. This links us into a unique collaboration of expertise and experience. The AHSN Network shares learning, pools intelligence and offers access to a pipeline of emerging and proven solutions from around the country.
