Welcome to Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network's Website

GM AHSN is one of 15 Academic Health Science Networks across England: spreading innovation, improving health, generating economic growth.

As the only bodies that connect NHS and academic organisations, local authorities, the third sector and industry, we are catalysts that create the right conditions to facilitate change across whole health and social care economies, with a clear focus on improving outcomes for patients. Greater Manchester AHSN brings together 33 members comprising NHS providers, commissioners and universities across Greater Manchester, East Lancashire Trust and East Cheshire. Our ambition is to deliver a step change in health outcomes and to support Greater Manchester's strategy for growth through enabling £1bn of wealth creation over five years, supporting SMEs and helping to create a healthier population.
