AHSN Network Spread and Adoption Review

Dr Nicola Hutchinson, Chief Executive Officer at the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC), has welcomed the ‘Review of spread and adoption approaches across the AHSN Network’ report published today.

She said: “The AHSN NENC’s position at the heart of our regional health and care system offers an unparalleled understanding of local needs and complexities. This insight is crucial when it comes to our role delivering spread and adoption of innovation.

“Today’s report from The AHSN Network highlights the varied approaches to spread and adoption across the 15 AHSNs and offers a critical insight into the diverse methods and frameworks used.

“We know that a one-size-fits-all approach isn’t the answer. Effective delivery of spread and adoption of innovations must allow for flexibility and adaptability in approaches that consider and complement regional complexities.

“By reflecting, sharing knowledge and learning from our collective successes and challenges, as highlighted in this report, AHSNs can further strengthen the support we provide to NHS teams to ensure vital innovations reach patients faster.”
