Northern Health Science Alliance named in Industrial Strategy

THE Northern Health Science Alliance, a pan-Northern alliance of NHS teaching hospitals, Universities and Academic Health Science Networks, is delighted to announce it has been named in today's Industrial Strategy White Paper, reflecting our ability to support its delivery. The strategy states the Northern Health Science Alliance will be driver of a further phase of the Industrial Strategy Life Sciences Sector deal with the North of England.

Dr Hakim Yadi OBE, CEO of the NHSA said:- "We are delighted to see the announcement in the Government's Industrial Strategy White Paper today that they will establish a regional sector deal for life sciences in the North of England in partnership with the Northern Health Science Alliance. A regional sector deal creates an exciting new opportunity for a dialogue between the North's health innovation and life sciences sector and Government, ensuring we fully capitalise on and continue to develop the North of England's existing assets and infrastructure in life sciences. This has the potential to have a lasting positive impact on the health and wealth of the region."

The NHSA is a health partnership of the North's leading Universities, NHS teaching hospitals and four Academic Health Science Networks. It works together with industry, Government and Life Sciences organisations to represent the North of England internationally, nationally and at a local level. Its ground breaking Connected Health Cities programme was awarded ₤20m by the Department for Health in 2015 and is using data analysis to improve patient care across the North.

Professor Ian Greer, Chair of the Northern Health Science Alliance and Vice President of the University of Manchester, said:- "The North of England has great capacity to deliver on the UK's Industrial Strategy, and with this announcement it will help it to do so. Such investment will unlock the potential in the North and deliver both health and economic impact. Being named in the Industrial Strategy demonstrates the will of Government to work with our members and partners, to further develop the many areas of excellence in the North of England.  Programmes such as our Connected Health Cities project, and many biomedical research programmes across the region, are breaking new ground and acting as drivers for investment bringing both health and wealth to North and the whole UK."
