Additional support of at least £5,000 a year to nursing students

December 18, 2019

I am delighted with news that nursing students will benefit from guaranteed, additional support of at least £5,000 a year to help with living costs. The funding will be given to all new and continuing degree-level nursing, midwifery and many allied health students from September 2020. It is expected to benefit more than 35,000 students every year.


Additional payments of up to £3,000 will be available for students in regions or specialisms struggling to recruit, or to help students cover childcare costs. 


I welcome the Government's commitment to back nursing students and make sure the NHS has the staff it needs to deliver world-class care. 


I know that across Mansfield and Warsop people want us to focus on the NHS, and I fully support this. It's brilliant that the Government is introducing this financial support to work towards the commitment of delivering 50,000 more nurses on our wards. 


The NHS is a top priority for this Government, which is why we are legislation to guarantee our multi-year funding increase of £33.9 billion.
