Healthcare Student Update

I hope despite everything you are well. I understand this has been a difficult and challenging time for us all, especially those working in the NHS or trying to complete studies.
Since I last contacted you, there have been many changes
UNISON, along with other health unions have written to Matt Hancock asking him to to recognise the significant contribution of students during the Covid crisis by implementing the following;
  • Reimburse tuition fees or forgive current student debt for all current nursing, midwifery and allied healthcare students
  • Abolish student funded tuition fees for all nursing, midwifery and allied healthcare students starting in 2020/21 and beyond, in recognition that they will be supporting vital public services
  • Introduce universal, living maintenance grants that reflect actual student need
UNISON also believes the government can show the depth of its gratitude by writing off student fees.
I can be contacted by email on please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries regarding any of the above.
Kind Regards
