Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund to invest in NHS chatbot-maker Babylon Health

UK Digital health company, Babylon Health., could be receiving investment from Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund.

Babylon, which has developed an app that lets people book virtual appointments with their GPs and order prescriptions, is in the midst of raising capital to expand its operations in North America and expand in the Middle East and China.
