The Academic Health Science Network North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) latest unmet need call aims to connect innovators from healthcare with innovation pathway partners, to address challenges identified by NHS staff and improve health outcomes. PSA testing measures the amount of prostate specific antigen in the blood and patients who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer need to closely monitor their levels. It is a joint project between Health Network North and South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust, supported by the Northern Cancer Alliance, as a result of its work on prostate cancer follow up. The unmet need call aims to make PSA testing as accessible as possible within a home or community setting, enabling patients or their carers to test serum/blood PSA concentrations.
