Supporting the response to COVID-19

During this current period of extreme operational pressure, Yorkshire & Humber AHSN will be supporting our colleagues on the frontline and in planning and operations by offering the most appropriate assistance as and when required. This will include supporting the implementation of technology to maximise the use of remote consultations and online guidance, freeing up valuable clinician time and reducing the risk of transmission.

We are working closely with our regional NHS teams to coordinate this support, but if you have any other query or request for support, get in touch with us at info@yhahsn.com.

AHSN Network response to COVID-19

Now that our partners across the NHS and social care are mobilising at scale in response to the developing COVID-19 pandemic, our role is to support them by helping them take full advantage of the most relevant innovations and technologies that can improve care for patients and support our services in this challenging context.

Nationally, the AHSN Network is part of a coordinated NHS response to identify and enable the implementation of technologies that respond to areas of highest priority action, in particular solutions for remote consultation and patient monitoring, diagnostics and point-of-care testing.

Similarly, in the regions each AHSN is part of a system-wide approach, led by our regional NHS offices, to support our local health and care organisations – connecting them with potential solutions and offering up the specific operational or clinical skill sets of our teams where relevant. This includes our Patient Safety Collaboratives, who will be adapting their specialist skills towards keeping patients safe in these very demanding environments.
