Thousands more nursing associates and nurses to train each year, pledges Hunt


I have been nursing for 30 years and am one of the very fortunate healthcare assistants to be awarded an apprenticeship for the assistant practitioner role, I am thrilled to be chosen as I would not have been able to go to university myself. I will be paid a band 3 wage for 2 years whilst training, what a wonderful opportunity, I have the skills and knowledge to succeed and make a damn good healthcare practitioner and I genuinely care about the patients. Patients first that's what counts!! Thank you government for acknowledging the amazing talents that our healthcare assistants have and what hard work we do.
