£5000 grant for medical studentsWatch
Back of the envelope calculation: assuming that there are 7,000 medical students per year, each getting £5,000 for 4 years (last year is paid by NHS bursary) will cost > £100 million. This does not take into account increasing numbers of med students, and some do 6 year courses.
The government already subsidises £163,000 per medical student. Sadly it is unlikely that this compaign will succeed, whichever way you look at it. https://fullfact.org/health/cost-training-doctor/
I don't think it should be £5k though and I don't think it should be applicable to the first 4 years.
