This could see the trialling of an innovative approach to cancer testing that includes whole slide scanners, image management software and image analysis algorithms.

It is hoped the partnership will lead to greater efficiency in tissue pathology services and will help deliver faster and more accurate test results across the NHS.

Geoff Twist, Managing Director of Roche Diagnostics UK & Ireland, said: “We are proud to be working with the government at an exciting time for the future of our NHS.”
