Here is an extract of the letter
“I face relentless hours, department cuts and exhaustion everyday at my hospital. There’s a gap of 42,000 nursing jobs in England that are unfilled ……..
Hospitals like mine are on their knees. And it’s no surprise, since nursing bursaries were ended in 2015, applications to be a nurse have dropped by a third. Now if you want to be a nurse, you have to face up to £50,000 in student debt.
“Bringing back nursing bursaries will bring thousands more people back to nursing. It would help the NHS survive and keep our patients safer.”
