Enhanced membership

WMAHSN offers an enhanced membership scheme, with additional benefits, services and premium access, in return for a small contribution from organisations should they choose to do so. This will provide them with a series of tools and practical support methodologies to accelerate the adoption of innovative technologies and service approaches, delivering improved healthcare outcomes and economic growth.

The WMAHSN is also developing a Corporate Partnership scheme for larger industry members.

As well as all the benefits, features and networks of the standard membership, premium services for enhanced members comprise:

Through the implementation of its membership scheme, WMAHSN expects the following benefits to be achieved:

  • Engagement with industry at the highest level possible in order to resolve local health economy problems and create markets through a collaborative and solution-focused approach
  • Creation of a health economy that is known for best practice in delivering high-quality healthcare and economic wealth for its population
  • Provision of capacity and practical support to understand the best approach to the adoption of NICE guidelines and technical appraisals
  • An increase in the number of regional homegrown and commercialised NHS ideas, from conception through to widespread adoption
  • A reduction in the time it takes to implement innovations in order to realise patient outcomes, experience and service delivery benefits.
