star this property answer text <p>In August 2017 the Government changed the funding system for pre-registration undergraduate nurse training. The intention of the reforms is to boost participation and secure the future supply of home-grown nurses to the National Health Service and enable universities to create additional nursing and midwifery training places.</p><p> </p><p>On 7 February, the University and College Admissions Service (UCAS) published full-time undergraduate nursing and midwifery applications made by the 15 January deadline. This data showed a 4.5% increase in the number of applicants compared to the same point in 2018.</p><p> </p><p>Based on the data UCAS published in February, there is no intention to provide bursaries for nurse training course fees.</p><p> </p><p>On 9 May 2018 the former Secretary of State for Health (Rt. hon. Jeremy Hunt MP) announced a £10,000 package of golden hello payments for 2018/19 loan funded postgraduate nursing students that take up employment in learning disability, mental health or community service nursing roles. The full details of this incentive will be published in due course.</p><p> </p><p>The NHS Long Term Plan, published on 7 January 2019, sets out a vital strategic framework to ensure that over the next 10 years the NHS will have the staff it needs so that nurses have the time they need to care, working in a supportive culture that allows them to provide the expert compassionate care they are committed to providing.</p><p> </p><p>My Rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has commissioned Baroness Dido Harding, working closely with Sir David Behan, to lead a number of programmes to engage with key NHS interests to develop a detailed workforce implementation plan. These programmes will consider detailed proposals to grow the workforce, including consideration of additional staff and skills required, build a supportive working culture in the NHS and ensure first rate leadership for NHS staff.</p>

star this property answer text <p>This Government recognises that winter, with demand placed on services with colder weather and seasonal flu, is a challenging time for the National Health Service as it is for health services around the world. Ministers meet weekly with our systems leaders in the NHS to ensure that our services are equipped for winter to support those who need them.</p><p> </p><p>This year the Government has supported the NHS with more than £420 million of winter funding. Although we are at the start of the winter period, the latest published NHS winter operational updates show that in December there have been fewer ambulance handover delays and diverts to other accident and emergency’s compared to last year. This means ambulances spend less time at hospitals and more time on the roads reaching patients.</p><p> </p><p>On 7 January 2019, I laid a written ministerial statement <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2019-01-07/HCWS1232/" target="_blank">HCWS1232</a> which sets out our preparations to help the NHS this winter.</p>

star this property answer text <p>This Government has been clear that we do not want or expect a ‘no deal’ scenario. However, it is the duty of a responsible Government to continue to prepare for a range of potential outcomes, including the event of ‘no deal’. The Department has undertaken extensive work to prepare for a ‘no deal’ scenario, including contingency planning, and we continue to take the necessary steps to ensure the country continues to operate smoothly from the day we leave.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is working with its partners across Government, arm’s length bodies and industry, to ensure that all relevant parties are prepared for exiting the European Union. The quality and safety of patient care is paramount in our preparedness plans.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is working to mitigate the impact of any potential delays at borders if there is ‘no deal’. Our planning aims to ensure that from the day the United Kingdom leaves the EU, we will have the necessary resources in place to maintain uninterrupted supplies of medicines and medical products.</p><p> </p><p>Over the course of August, September and October 2018, the Government published a series of technical notices, eight of which are specific to the health and care sector. Since then, we have published further guidance on preparing for a ‘no deal’ scenario.</p><p> </p><p>In preparation for the possibility of a ‘no deal’ exit, the Department, with the support of NHS England and Improvement and Public Health England, has set up a national Operational Response Centre (ORC), which is structured to be able to respond to any impacts on health and social care. This will lead on responding to disruptions to delivery and co-ordinate reporting across the health and care system; the Department has a wide pool of trained staff available to support this if needed. The ORC will work with the devolved administrations to respond to United Kingdom-wide incidents where appropriate.</p>
