NHS to offer mature students £5k to become mental health nurses | Society | The Guardian
Applications for undergraduate degree courses in nursing have plummeted by 32% since bursaries for student nurses were scrapped in England in 2016, despite warnings that the move would backfire. Applications from mature students to study mental health and disability nursing fell even more sharply – by 40% – between 2016 and this year. Interest has dwindled so dramatically that many universities are considering axing their specialist courses.

Driving students away from nursing is a spectacular act of political self-harm | Polly Toynbee | Opinion | The Guardian
With 40,000 nursing vacancies unfilled, the news that training applications are down by 23% is disastrous for the NHS [...] It reckons that in all over the past 10 years, 400,000 people who would have studied part-time in higher education have been deterred from doing so. [... can really re-pay the fees working for nurse salary + the jobs commitment ... + working 50% of their time training! ] [...] Janet Davies, head of the Royal College of Nursing, warns that nurses’ attitudes will alter once they are paying heftily for their training: “They will demand better clinical placements and their relationship with the NHS will change: carrying a heavy debt to get qualified, they will feel less obligation to work in the NHS.” The government promised that imposing fees on trainee nurses would see an increase of 10,000 new training places; none have been provided.

NHS services face 'impossible' budget crisis, health trusts warn | Society | The Guardian
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-38757708 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-39316963 NHS Providers says operation waiting lists and delays at A&E departments will soar next year under predicted funding [...] Chief executive Chris Hopson said the government needed to “sit up and listen”, the BBC reported. “NHS trusts will strain every sinew to deliver the commitments made for the health service. But we now have a body of evidence showing that, with resources available, the NHS can no longer deliver what the NHS constitution requires of it.

“We fear that patient safety is increasingly at risk.” [...] 24,000 nurse jobs unfilled, Royal College of Nursing figures show.

Record numbers of EU nurses quit NHS | Society | The Guardian
The number of EU nationals registering as nurses in England has dropped by 92% since the Brexit referendum in June, and a record number are quitting the NHS, it can be revealed. [...] The haemorrhaging of foreign staff is being blamed by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) on the failure of the government to provide EU nationals in the UK with any security about their future. May has claimed that Britain cannot act unilaterally to guarantee residency as it would weaken her hand in the coming article 50 negotiations over Brexit.

Janet Davies, chief executive and general secretary of the RCN, said the government’s tactic was backfiring, and now threatened the sustainability of the health service.

Plan to end student grants without Commons vote outrages opposition | Politics | The Guardian
[ shifting public debt onto private debt balance sheet. = no vision! debt is still there in economy! paying higher interest rates. -- vs -- bankers gambling debt put on public balance sheet! ] Ministers have been accused of an “outrageous” attempt to sneak through their proposals to end student grants in England without proper scrutiny by MPs. The plan to scrap maintenance grants, which help half a million of the poorest students pay for university life, will go through a legislation committee on Thursday, without a vote and debate on the floor of the House of Commons. [...] Labour is opposing the change and the lack of scrutiny. Gordon Marsden, the shadow universities minister, said it was “not simply technical tinkering but a major change by the government that will deprive around half a million of England’s students from lower income and disadvantaged households, of maintenance grant funding”. // &!
