The arrangements for students of private medical schools to receive training in National Health Service settings are a matter for agreement between the medical school and the NHS organisation. Funding for placements commissioned by Health Education England and its local offices should not be used to subsidise any element of the cost of placements for non-NHS funded students or trainees.
