National Programmes

About the programme

England’s 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) have a dual regional and national focus. As a collective, we deliver local work programmes based on the needs of regional systems and drive programmes that tackle national priorities and are expected to have a universal impact at scale.

In 2020/21 AHSNs started to deliver three new national adoption and spread programmes focused on:

  • early intervention for eating disorders – supporting mental health teams to speed up diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders in young people aged 16-25,
  • improved assessment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and young people,
  • supporting primary care in preventing and managing cardiovascular disease (CVD) through interventions around lipid management and identifying and treating people with familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH).
