    In September 2020 the UK Government announced the winners of its first Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Health and Care Awards and Kheiron's bid was successful. The funding that's been won will accelerate the roll out and rapid adoption of Mia (Mammography Intelligent Assessment) to address critical workforce challenges in NHS breast screening services in the UK. Kheiron is using the next 3 years to technically deploy and generate the evidence that our AI tool (Mia) can be safely adopted as the second reader in the breast screening workflow. They will be doing this across 15 NHS Breast Sc

    Cancer operations at one of England’s largest hospital trusts are being delayed as bosses admit patient care on wards is being compromised. Nottingham University Hospitals Trust has been forced to convert one of its few remaining wards for cancer surgery patients into an emergency medical ward to cope with an influx of patients. The Independent understands the trust’s A&E department is regularly overcrowded with 40 or more patients waiting for a bed at the start of most days. In a leaked message to staff sent on Friday and shared with The Independent, bosses at the hospital

    Screening for prostate cancer could be possible in the next five years, according to one of the UK's leading experts. Prof Ros Eeles, from the Institute of Cancer Research, said advances in genetics and medical imaging were making it possible. About 50,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with the disease each year, and nearly 12,000 die. NHS England said prostate screening had been notoriously tricky. Despite it being one of the most common cancers, there is no equivalent of the regular mammograms that detect breast cancer. There is a blood test that looks for levels of

    People with some of the deadliest forms of cancer are being diagnosed later than ever as a result of disruption to healthcare caused by the Covid pandemic, campaigners have warned. Stomach, lung, pancreatic, brain, stomach and oesophageal cancers have some of the poorest long-term survival rates and have always been disproportionately diagnosed late following an emergency hospital admission. However, campaigners are concerned that the poor prognoses for these patients have been exacerbated by factors such as a reluctance to attend A&E or bother GPs during the pandemic, and by bottlene

    An urgent debate has been called in the Senedd over a move to extend routine cervical screenings in Wales from every three years to five years. Public Health Wales (PHW) said those aged 25-49 who had not tested positive for human papillomavirus (HPV) would now wait two more years between tests. PHW said it was because the screening tests are now more accurate. However, 30,000 people signed a petition against it, citing the risk it could cause an increase in deaths. Particularly concerned are those who have not received the HPV vaccine, a national immunisation programme for which

    The public are being urged not to put off seeking help for worrying cancer symptoms because of NHS pressures. NHS England chiefs said record numbers were being seen for check-ups before Omicron hit - and despite the current situation cancer was being prioritised. There have been nearly 50,000 fewer cancer diagnoses across the UK since the start of the pandemic, Macmillan Cancer Support say. This risks an increase in late-stage diagnoses, reducing survival chances. Past surveys have suggested people are reluctant to come forward during surges in Covid cases because they did

    Coleen McSorley, who has been deaf from birth, was left upset and struggling to understand the details of her cancer diagnosis. Now one care centre is hoping to offer more support to others facing a similar challenge. Coleen was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2020. At the time, Covid restrictions meant she was unable to bring an interpreter or her hearing parents to hospital appointments. The 56-year-old said she was given wads of literature about her cancer - but like many people who have been deaf from birth, she struggles to read. "English is my second language aft

    GPs and women are still ignoring key symptoms of ovarian cancer despite better awareness of the disease, a charity has warned, prompting fears that yet more patients will be diagnosed late and “die needlessly”. Symptoms include frequently having a swollen tummy or feeling bloated; pain or tenderness in the tummy or the pelvis; having no appetite or feeling full quickly after eating, and an urgent need to pee or needing to pee more often, according to the NHS. However, Target Ovarian Cancer is concerned that despite successful campaigns to boost awareness of the disease, many are stil

    Women who have the HPV vaccine may need only one smear test to prevent cervical cancer in their lifetime, according to a leading scientist. Women are currently invited for screening every three to five years in the UK. But Prof Peter Sasieni said the vaccine was leading to such dramatic reductions in cancer that the screening programme would need to change soon. The NHS invites women, and people with a cervix, for regular screening. Swabs of the cervix are used to check for signs of abnormalities using a microscope (the traditional smear test) or more recently to test for the virus i

    An overview of the recommendations 1. Contraception Sexual and reproductive health services must be prioritised to counter patchy healthcare service provision – and access must be made available, in and out of hours. NICE should re-examine guidelines that recommend routine appointments for oral contraception users – with a view to limiting unnecessary medical checks that may only serve to limit contraception access. Progestogen-only pill (POP) should be made available on general sales (off the shelf) and not require consultation with a pharmacist unless the woman wi

    In the report the Coroner states her main concerns as follows: The inquest heard that there were significant delays in patients being seen in secondary care for gynaecological referrals from GPs. The inquest was told that these delays had now increased. In November 2020 the wait time for an appointment was 1 month for an urgent appointment and 4 months for a routine appointment. The wait times now in Tameside for gynaecology were 8 months for a routine appointment and 4 months for urgent appointments. The increase in wait times reflected a national picture the inquest was told and refl

    A national robotic-assisted surgery programme allowing surgeons to perform complex procedures with more precision and control is being introduced in Wales, the Health Minister has announced. The All-Wales Robotic Assisted Surgery Network, developed by health boards, the Life Sciences Hub Wales and the Moondance Cancer Initiative, will provide less invasive surgery for thousands of cancer patients across the country. The surgery involves the use of highly advanced robotic surgical instruments under the control of a surgeon. It will initially be used in Wales for some Colorectal, Upper
