Replace doctor trainee bursaries with loans, think-tank recommends


Concept is reasonable. implementation is usually the issue. How many criticising the proposal on here would not have qualified to have it all paid off by HEE? Not many I guess. With the number of doctors the country is training at tax-payers expense, there needs to be a mechanism to ensure that they are coming into the NHS. Those who lose out should be those who do the training and take their skills elsewhere. Safety netting needs to be in place to protect those who either don't complete training or for exceptional circumstances cannot complete the requisite time in the NHS to qualify.
