Transforming lives in health and social care
The South West AHSN Innovation Exchange works across Devon, Somerset, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to identify the needs of the healthcare system and find innovative solutions to meet those challenges.
We are uniquely placed to identify and spread health innovation, using our close partnerships with the NHS, universities, industry, and the voluntary sector to improve the healthcare of people in the South West and across England.
Funded by the government’s Office for Life Sciences, we connect the health and care sector with innovators who have the solutions it needs, and drive the adoption and spread of interventions that are ready to enter the South West ecosystem.
We support innovators from the South West and beyond to transform the lives of patients.
We work with our partner organisations to define themes to meet the region’s unique challenges and opportunities.
