Reporting to the Commercial Director, this role will be responsible for leading the commercial activities of the AHSN, including a particular focus on the delivery of external programmes, but also providing commercial support to internal AHSN developments.

We are one of 15 AHSNs established by the NHS in 2013. We work in our local areas to identify and spread healthcare innovation - helping the NHS do things better and cheaper.
This involves working as an 'honest broker' bringing together many partners across sectors: the NHS, public health, local government, universities, voluntary organisations and healthcare companies.

As well as working in our own regions the 15 AHSNs collaborate as a national network to take what works best locally and quickly spread it throughout England.

Based on our outstanding impacts during our first 5 year licences, the AHSNs were relicensed from April 2018 to operate as the key innovation arm of the NHS.

Most AHSNs are 'hosted' within an NHS Trust. EMAHSN is hosted by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH). Whilst we are employed by NUH and follow the Trust's policies and procedures, we operate as a standalone organisation with our own work programmes and separate offices, budgets, governance arrangements, branding and visual identity.
