Leeds’ Answer partners on project to bring AI to NHS

A new partnership will see two AI platforms developed which can support NHS clinicians with diagnosis and treatments, personalised therapies, and screening across a range of conditions and procedures.

Leeds-based digital consultancy Answer is collaborating with The London Medical Imaging and AI Centre for Value-Based Healthcare on the project. 

It will provide the NHS with an open-source solution which includes a platform for implementing machine learning without the need for sensitive data to leave the Trust’s secure environment, and an AI Deployment Engine which will enable AI to be deployed safely within the Trusts.

Commenting on plans, Beverley Bryant, chief digital Information officer for Guy’s and St Thomas’NHS Foundation Trust & King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and senior responsible owner for the London Medical Imaging and AI Centre for Value-Based Healthcare, said: “This is a unique programme to implement AI at scale within the NHS.

“Our partnership with Answer is another key step toward deploying this open-source technology in clinical environments.”

Richard Pugmire, director at Answer, said: “Answer has a deep history of partnership with the NHS on nationally significant innovation that advances personalised and digitally-enabled healthcare provision across the NHS. 

“The AI programme is hugely ambitious, and the partnership allows us to bring the best technical, clinical and academic minds together to showcase a truly robust solution, capable of changing the way healthcare is provided for many years to come.”
