3631338766?profile=RESIZE_710xMinisters may reintroduce grants to attract people into nursing amid staff shortage

Ministers may reintroduce financial incentives to attract people into nursing to help the NHS tackle its serious and worsening lack of nurses.

The health service in England’s shortage has spiralled to 40,000 vacancies since George Osborne abolished bursaries for would-be nurses and replaced them with student loans in 2015.

This has led to 10,000 fewer people a year applying for nursing degrees in England and made it harder for hospitals to recruit homegrown nurses.
