Support Healthcare Students: Sign, Write, Tell
As you may know, healthcare students up and down the country have been working on the frontlines in the NHS since March to help with the Covid-19 response.
We’ve joined forces with over 100 Greenwich Healthcare Students and 29 Students' Unions across the country calling for the government to waive the debt of all healthcare students who’ve stepped up to do this vital work.
Jono Smith, GSU Officer 2018-20, explains why this campaign is important:
I struggle to imagine how difficult it is to make the decision to put your studies aside and step up to work at a time like this. To make that decision knowing that you're putting yourself in the line of danger is something I'm not sure I'd ever be able to imagine. This selfless act of bravery deserves to be recognised and appreciated so I implore everyone to get behind our incredible healthcare students and Sign, Write, Tell. This is just a small act of appreciation in comparison to what healthcare students are doing up and down the country, but this is our opportunity to fight for them, whilst they fight for us.
