Hospitals of the future

We asked people at the Edinburgh International Science Festival what they thought hospitals would be like in the future and they came up with some fantastic ideas.

Some of our favourite ideas included robot doctors, robotic blankets, floating beds, robot nurses and ice cream on tap!
