Drop In Number Of Midwifery Students

The number of students on midwifery and nursing degree courses is down 8%, according to new data from UCAS.

The figures have been published in a report by the Health Service Journal (HSJ).

The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) has warned of such a repercussion since the government announced proposals to abolish the bursary in late 2015.

Jon Skewes, RCM director for policy, employment relations and communications, said: "These figures are a clear sign that the government's plans to boost training numbers are not based on reality.

"The confusion over clinical placement funding and midwifery students’ concerns over taking on tens of thousands of pounds worth of debt has meant we are seriously risking the future workforce supply of the NHS.

"The RCM warned the government time and time again that their plans would deter potentially great midwives that our NHS so badly needs right now."
