Fund tuition fees for midwives and nurses
We must stop student nurses and midwives having to pay tuition fees. The current system is not reflective enough of the work and sacrifices we are making for our country.
We are standing united as an army on the front line and yet we are dismissed, forgotten and voiceless.
We pay over £9,000 a year to become the future workforce of the NHS. We will spend most of this academic year exposed to patients, relying in good faith on them complying with guidelines. We are protected by masks, aprons and gloves but we are still within proximity of others most of the time. We pay to put ourselves and our families at potential risk. We are at risk of abuse from patients who cannot understand why a student can be present at antenatal appointments but their partners can’t be.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
