Update Following General Election

Update Following General Election

December 16, 2019

Oxford, UK: Sensyne Health plc (LSE: SENS), the British clinical AI technology company, provides an update following the UK General Election which took place on 12 December 2019.

The outcome of the UK General Election, returning a Conservative government with a significantly increased majority, has now removed a degree of uncertainty from the operating environment for the Company.  

Over the past year, the UK government has been moving towards a strategy for the commercial use of anonymised patient data based upon the creation of a sovereign capability at a national level.  As announced by the Company on 5 December 2018, Sensyne Health has welcomed this and has formed a portfolio of collaborations with major strategic partners over the past year to enable it to respond positively to these developments.

The new government has signalled that NHS investment and reform will be its top priority and it will now be able to progress with the creation of a national patient data capability.

The Company and its partners are strategically well positioned, with Sensyne’s unique NHS partnership model providing a shared financial return back into the NHS.

Lord (Paul) Drayson, CEO of Sensyne Health plc, said:
“Sensyne looks forward to working with its NHS partners in 2020 to deliver on this exciting future vision for our National Health Service.”
