Lots of people have been writing to me about Government's decision to scrap bursaries for nursing, midwifery and allied health professions and replace them with a loan system. It's something I strongly oppose and therefore have decided to write to Jeremy Hunt.
I have also put in a written question to the Health Department asking:
What assessment has the Government made of the impact on mature student applications once NHS bursaries are replaced with student loans?
I will update my website once I have received a response, and continue pressure for these changes to be reserved in the meantime.
