Investing in our NHS - Better Diagnostic testing

The government has announced a £248 million investment in NHS technology to bring diagnostic tests into the digital age, tackling patient waiting lists and speeding up treatment.

  • Diagnostic tests are used by the NHS to spot dangerous health conditions and diseases and understand the right care and treatment for patients – but analysing tests and sharing the results can often take time.
  • That is why the Health Secretary has this week announced a £248 million investment to digitise diagnostic services – allowing test results to be shared digitally so that more tests can be done and NHS staff can access results quicker.
  • These upgrades – alongside record funding for the NHS, which includes £2.3 billion for diagnostic services – will help save lives by speeding up the diagnosis of health conditions, ensuring earlier treatment and reducing waiting lists.
