    For my EPQ...

    Would appreciate anyone offering their opinions of whether in the future robots could work alongside humans in the NHS (assisting nurses for example). Would you let a robot perform minor/major surgery on you?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

    Would the human be controlling the robot? Otherwise no.

    Depends if it was an engineer or a doctor that created said robot. If it was both I'd be okay with it but it would have to be controlled by a super specialist because very few surgeries are alike.

    more like a self automated robot/ machine made with the knowledge base of a doctor.

    thank you all for the input.

    one more question if you don't mind.


    do you think government funding should be prioritised by healthcare, especially with the current state of the NHS or should they look at education or the environment?
