Mum from King's Cliffe blasts Government minister's claim that NHS student nurses are 'not providing a service' as a 'slap in the face'
A King's Cliffe mum told by a government minister that student nurses like her ‘are not providing a service to the NHS’ says the response is ‘like a slap in the face’ after working on the frontline during the pandemic.
A media storm has blown up over the comment made by care minister Helen Whately in a letter to Corby MP Tom Pursglove (Con) after he had raised the nurses debt issue on behalf of constituent Jessica Collins,who has been campaigning to cancel the colossal debt current student nurses have racked up during training.
GMB TV anchorman Piers Morgan has spoken out on the matter today (Monday, June 22) and Jessica will be doing interviews with national media throughout the day.
