The Tayside AHSP: A qualitative evaluation and report

Benet Reid, Lisi Jane Gordon

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The Academic Health Sciences Partnership in Tayside (Tayside AHSP) is a unique collaboration between NHS Tayside, University of Dundee and industry partners to drive and enable innovation uptake in health and social care.

Tayside AHSP is an example of an Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC). These centres promote a strong academic/healthcare provider/industry partnership that drives synergy and integration in research, innovation, service improvement and education and training of health professionals, to achieve better health outcomes and enhance job and wealth creation.

This independent, qualitative evaluation by academics from the School of Management at the University of St Andrews explores the perceived value, successes and challenges of setting up and implementing the Tayside AHSP since its start in 2014.

The findings and recommendations laid out in the next two pages are based on the collection of a multi-faceted dataset including: documentary analysis of internal and publicly available documents; thirty-seven stakeholder interviews; and observation of meetings between stakeholders and healthcare innovation-related events.

The findings and recommendations from this evaluation will potentially influence the future direction of a Health Innovation Network in Scotland.
