Paramedic students, radiographers and physiotherapists will be among those receiving the new financial support from September 2020.
Here is the list of students who will benefit the funding:
It said that all new and continuing nursing, midwifery students and many allied health students on pre-registration courses at English universities will receive a £5,000 maintenance grant each year, without the need to pay it back.
£5,000 are expected to grant a benefit to around 100,000 pre-registration nursing, midwifery and allied health degree students every year. It comes as part of the government’s manifesto commitment to increase nurse numbers by 50,000 by 2025. Extra payments worth up to £3,000 per academic year will be available for eligible students. Each year they could receive:
“From paramedics students to physiotherapists, radiographers to speech and language therapists, our talented allied health professionals are the third largest workforce in the NHS and support people to live better lives – Minister for Public Health Jo Churchill said, – As demand grows, we need more of the best and brightest to join our NHS.
I want those who would relish the job of saving people’s lives as a paramedic or diagnosing cancer as a radiographer to come forward to train, taking advantage of this fantastic new £5,000 support package.”
Minister for Care Caroline Dinenage said: “We want to support people with learning disabilities to live full, healthy and happy lives. The expertise of learning disability nurses is essential as they provide tailored care that can help people become more independent.
In the years to come, we’re going to need more learning disability nurses to provide high-quality care, so I’m delighted that from September all new students will receive at least £6,000 a year to help with their cost of living.
I want to see more people considering a career in learning disability nursing, helping to achieve our NHS Long Term Plan ambition to improve care for people with learning disabilities.”
