Automation could give health service a much-needed reboot by helping to prioritise those most in need of treatment

Robots will be deployed to help clear NHS waiting lists and decide who gets seen first.
Pilot schemes have begun using automated calls to assess patients waiting for operations and prioritise their urgency.
One major company said the NHS is now looking to use automatisation in about 100 areas, including helping to clear backlogs and speed up the handling of referrals.
The expansion could mean more than 100,000 NHS workers are trained in coding and bot creation, in order to reduce the bureaucratic burden.

Why not just give every household the machines so they can use them themselves and not have to be bothered with seeing a doctor?
