From diagnosis to recovery, machines could take on a range of jobs, a new report suggests

Robots could soon help hospital patients eat their meals, diagnose serious illnesses and even help people recover from operations, in an artificial intelligence revolution in the NHS, a new report predicts.

Machines could take over a wide range of tasks currently done by doctors, nurses, healthcare assistants and administrative staff, according to a leading thinktank.

Widespread adoption of AI and the NHS embracing “full automation” could free up as much as £12.5bn a year worth of staff time for them to spend interacting with patients.
