To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they have received in relation to the proposal by the Office for Students to cut funding to universities providing pre-registration clinical training for physiotherapists and other student clinicians by 3 per cent.
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of a reduction in university funding on the expansion of physiotherapy training.
No representations have been made to Her Majesty’s Government in relation to the proposal by the Office for Students (OfS) to make savings to teaching grant funding, including for some pre-registration clinical courses.
The OfS consulted on their proposals, which include a proposal to make additional budget provision for providers in a small number of high-cost and high-priority areas, to reflect additional students on pre-registration courses in medicine, nursing, midwifery and allied health professions. Providers and other interested parties have therefore had an opportunity to make representations. The OfS will conclude the consultation in due course.
