Welcome to your GM AHSN community

We cover Greater Manchester, East Lancashire and East Cheshire and we bring together healthcare and academic organisations in partnership with industry, local authorities and other agencies.

The area we cover already has world class strengths in patient safety, informatics and partnering with industry to nurture and grow innovations. We already initiate and host world leading health sciences research.

We now have a unique opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives. We see ourselves as a system integrator - an organisation that links different parts of the health and social care ecosystem.

Please find out more about our goals and projects on this site.
