BCS members are invited to contribute views to the NIHR Future of Health Project. The consultation will focus on what health challenges in England will be like in 20-30 years’ time, and how they will differ from today. The purpose of this project is to inform NIHR strategic thinking and ensure the NIHR view of future health and healthcare (including social care and public health) incorporates diverse perspectives, from a broad range of experts from around the country, including those of patient and public representatives.

I have answered the specific questions along the lines of people being responsible for their own records, the use of real-time heath monitoring and common interfaces and AI to eliminate the need for large, centralized health databases.
