UCLPartners is organised around clinical programmes. Each programme is led by an outstanding clinical leader who champions change across the whole patient pathway.
Academic Health Science Centres (AHSC)
The AHSC’s focus on research and how to put research findings into practice means that these programmes are structured around universities and university hospitals. Now the largest AHSC in Europe, UCLPartners undertakes discovery science in the areas where its partners have global research strengths, including: cancer, cardiovascular, child health, liver and digestive health, ENT, eyes and vision, immunology and transplantation, infectious diseases, mental health and wellbeing, neuroscience and women’s health.
Academic Health Science Network (AHSN)
Where the AHSC focuses on research, UCLPartners’ emergent AHSN will focus on innovation in practice, developing integrated outcomes-driven solutions to the most pressing healthcare challenges. The AHSN will complement the work of the AHSC by adopting and spreading the best clinical innovations that have been proven to be cost-effective and value for money. There are five integrated programmes: integrated cancer, integrated cardiovascular, integrated mental health, integrated co-morbidities and children, young people and maternal health.
