Bursary or Bust!

Picture from demonstration yesterday in London by 5000 NHS nurses and supporters against Tory plans to scrap their bursaries.There was also demonstrations in Manchester and Newcastle.

From UNISON "The government plans to force nurses into debt of at least £51,600 by making them pay the entire bill for their training, even though nurses spend 50% of their training time working for the NHS on clinical placements, and their starting salary is £22,799".
