Student nurses who joined frontline do not deserve to be cast aside – Justin Madders

Justin Madders MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, commenting on reports student nurses who joined the frontline to help tackle the coronavirus are now having their contracts ended, said:

“Student nurses up and down the country have cut their studies short, and in some cases left other jobs, to go and work on the frontline as part of the national effort to combat coronavirus.

“Their personal commitment should be recognised and reciprocated by the Government. They do not deserve to be cast aside like this and Ministers must explain exactly what is happening.”
