NHS partners with Amazon to offer health information through Alexa

The NHS is collaborating with e-commerce giant Amazon to provide health information through the voice-activated, ‘virtual assistant’ Alexa.

Patients will be able to ask Alexa questions like “how do I treat a migraine?” In response, Alexa will offer health information from the NHS.

The new partnership is being touted as a means of relieving pressure on GPs and the NHS by offering easy-to-access information for common illnesses to patients in need.
