Cruel cuts

Let’s hope the media pick up on this alarming report:

Members of the Health Joint Liaison Committee have said falling student numbers, decreased contact time with staff and increasing workloads are a direct result of cuts in funding for health educators. A snapshot report of health professionals by UCU has revealed a spate of devastating cuts across the country resulting in staff trying to do more for less, a drop in student numbers and a rise in the student:staff ratio.

Two-thirds of institutions responsible for training midwives, nurses, physios and occupational therapists report having to reduce student numbers.
