Plea over NHS stu­dent loans

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

MED­I­CAL stu­dents should be given “for­giv­able loans”, with their debts re­paid if they work for the NHS, doc­tors said to­day. Poor stu­dents are be­ing put off ap­ply­ing to med­i­cal school be­cause they face grad­u­at­ing with av­er­age debts of £37,000, or £57,000 if they study in London, they said. Fig­ures show that just 13% of med­i­cal stu­dents come from lower so­cio-eco­nomic groups.
