The Eastern Academic Health Science Network proposes to bring together universities, hospitals, mental health services, primary care, clinical commissioning groups, public health, social care, the voluntary sector and industry, translating world-class research into improved patient care, thus driving economic growth.
The Network aims to be an energised, proactive and non-hierarchical organisation, working across four large, established biomedical and clinical communities, with a clear commitment to drive sustainable improvements, through partners with a track record of excellence in research, teaching and education, health services and industry.
The EAHSN’s clinical priority areas for the five year work programme are:
- Dementia and mental health
- Long-term conditions
- Cardiovascular disease (including stroke)
- Chronic respiratory disorders.
- Patient safety
