Student Paramedics And The Learning Support Fund

EDM number 1864 in 2017-19, proposed by Liz Twist on 20/11/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Health education and preventive medicine.

That this House notes that, as part of the Government's health education funding reforms, new students in England starting a nursing, midwifery or allied health professional course can apply for financial support from the Leaming Support Fund (LSF); regrets that this does not extend to those students studying university paramedic courses; believes that student paramedics face similar costs and should not be excluded from accessing potential sources of financial support; further notes that in April 2018, according to job vacancy figures, ambulance services in England were short of almost 1,000 staff; and therefore calls on the Government to allow student paramedics to apply for support from the LSF as a way of tackling high attrition rates on paramedic courses and improving the retention of student paramedics within the NHS workforce.

This motion has been signed by a total of 16 MPs.
