Since the initial announcements regarding funding for National Health Service trusts to integrate artificial intelligence into lung cancer imaging, adjustments have been made to the list of participants. Three trusts have withdrawn from the initiative, and five additional trusts have been onboarded, due to the inclusion of a new imaging network. As a result, as set out in the answer of 7 May 2024, there are now 66 trusts across 12 imaging networks that are participating in this initiative.

In the answer of 7 May 2024, 63 out of 66 trusts, in 11 of 12 imaging networks, had received funding. It is now confirmed that all 66 trusts in the 12 imaging networks participating have received or are in the process of receiving funding. These trusts are currently implementing artificial intelligence technologies to enhance diagnostic capabilities in lung cancer, consistent with the Government's commitment to advancing healthcare technology across the NHS.
