Although it's not well advertised, you get this included with Bupa SME memberships (i.e. if you can get Bupa through work).

Not sure if it's accessible through other memberships though, since the partnership launched in 2018.

I know these people and their AI technologies very well.. Be very careful with what they do with your data.

Can you elaborate? From what I understand the AI is separate to the GP service (so you can avoid it if you want), are you referring solely to the AI?

All aspects of their platform is data-mined. Why would GP service not be data-mined? It would not violate any confidentiality agreement. They are not selling your data - they are mining it for their other products they have,,,,,,which are then sold. They use AI to mine the patient data and place it into their other products on their platform. I don;t know about you, but this scares me.

And you think the NHS don’t do the same?? No selling but plenty of mining going on. And sharing too

The NHS will not make database products and sell them to private healthcare companies, which is not yet in the UK because we have the NHS. But yes, there is definitely data mining in the NHS also for other purposes.

Unfortunately they decided against selling the data and instead paid for the privilege of handing over the countries Crown Jewels.

The US see us as ripe for implementation of their prohibitively expensive and third world private healthcare system because we are largely unprivatised. They want us to be like their citizens where a Dr consultation costs over $1000 and an operation means you have to sell your house. That's why imbecile Trump supports brexit. His advisors told him they could make a killing in the uk (and they can). The likes of babylon are the conduit for this to happen. They have AI methods to deal with such large amounts of data. They love employing healthcare professionals form the NHS and US (just look at their job board). Funny how an AI company is so interested in GPs, clinicians and nurses.

NHS gave Google AI department loads of data which they were supposed to keep separate and delete but that never happened. NHS isn't all....

Clearly, the NHS is giving away data, which is unacceptable and should be stopped. Babylon can't be stopped because people are buying into their product and the data goes straight into their database platform.

I got this via my employer’s SME membership. Before that I got it via my local NHS trust, who’d been partnering to offer this free, so worth checking that too.

Not sure why it’s been downvoted so much. Prior to this, seeing a GP meant queuing, in-person at my local surgery, at 7am, for what essentially is a bum fight with the local hypochondriacs to get an appointment - or wait 4-6 weeks to see a random locum GP/go to A&E. Both involve having to take paid time off work.

With this I got to an appointment with a consultant, and a prescription sent to local pharmacy - all in under 2 hours, and without having to use a day of paid leave.

It’s not ideal - but the government doesn’t seem to be too concerned with fixing the NHS.
