Exclusive: 'disaster' warning follows 12% drop in nurse training places


'David Green, vice-chancellor of the University of Worcester and former chair of the West Midlands group of Universities, said: “We are heading straight for a national disaster in two to three years’ time.” Professor Green, who has previously written to prime minister David Cameron about cuts in nurse training, said the number of places commissioned by SHAs was based on projections by chief executives who were trying to save money. He said the numbers were “divorced from reality” and not based on the actual need. “There is going to be a shortage, that’s plain to see,” he said.' Weren't we recently discussing the difference between 'having a consultation' and actually listening to what people tell you, somewhere ? And how come so many things that are 'plain to see' are invariably invisible to some people ?
