South London Academic Health Science Network

The South London Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) is a new partnership across South London that will drive lasting improvements in patient care by sharing innovations across the health system and capitalising on teaching and research strengths.

King’s Health Partners, working closely with St George’s NHS Healthcare Trust, local authorities, general practice and academic institutions in South London, is leading the design of the AHSN.
