500,000 patients to benefit from new NHS partnerships and technologies

Patients could benefit from faster access to treatment under two new programmes, which identify innovative technologies and treatments then speed up their uptake across the wider NHS.

The second wave of the NHS Test Beds programme will be launched in seven places across the country to tackle some of the biggest challenges in health and care by testing combinations of innovations in clinical settings. Projects include the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to deliver a more accurate and efficient breast cancer screening service and a new digital platform to help people to manage diabetes.
