Houses of Parliament, Westminster, London SW1A 0AA
UNISON along with the NUS and other trade unions will be lobbying the government to drop its plans to remove the bursary for healthcare students in 2017.
The government plans to force healthcare students into debt of up to £50,000 by making them pay the entire bill for their training, even though they spend 50% of their training time working for the NHS on clinical placements.
Let’s make the government understand that without the bursary many people will not be able to train for a career in the NHS.
