In a speech to staff members at West Suffolk Hospital, new Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, said the use of technology is an advance the NHS “must harness” and said the national health service will work with NHS Choices and Amazon to tailor information so patients that use Alexa can receive up-to-date and correct information.
