£96 million invested in new cutting-edge technology for the NHS
Today the government announced a £96 million investment in cutting-edge research and technology for our NHS, helping to deliver on the priority to cut waiting lists.
- Cutting waiting lists is one of the Prime Minister’s five priorities, and the Conservative Government is taking the tough decisions now for the long-term future of the country.
- That is why the government has announced today a £96 million investment in cutting-edge research and technology for our NHS, which will drive new scientific discoveries, help to improve the prevention and treatment of diseases, and pay for new equipment such as imaging devices, ultrasound machines, and mobile research vehicles.
- This plan will help to cut waiting lists for patients across the country and is one of a series of announcements we are making this week to help secure the future of the NHS – including training more nurses, more doctors, and delivering shorter waiting times.
