Accelerating Detection of Disease Programme (DHSC)

Summary

The government-backed Accelerating Detection of Disease programme will support co-investment in research aimed at earlier diagnosis, plus better prevention and appropriately targeted treatments for diseases including dementia, cancers and heart disease.

Up to 5 million healthy volunteers are anticipated to submit health data which will be fed into various diagnostic tests under development, using artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms.
