Ground-breaking artificial intelligence (AI) that can help clinicians diagnose lung cancer quickly and accurately is being rolled out in NHS hospitals across England following a £21 million funding boost from the government.

The funding is being allocated to 64 NHS trusts across all regions of the country so they can deploy AI tools that analyse X-rays and CT scans, speeding up diagnosis and treatments for patients.

With over 600,000 chest X-rays performed each month in England, the deployment of this technology to more NHS trusts will support clinicians in their work with quicker, more accurate diagnosis of conditions.

The new tools will start being deployed in NHS hospitals for winter, which will help to ease pressures on the NHS and free up staff time.

The Health and Social Care Secretary hosted a roundtable with NHS trusts, industry leaders and health officials today (30 October 2023) to identify ways of speeding up the roll out of AI in health and social care.

Discussions focused on the safe deployment of AI to help cut waiting lists and relieve pressure on hospitals, free up staff time by automating admin tasks, and support people in care settings to live more independently.
