Major expansion in training places for nurses and other health professionals

Health Minister, Vaughan Gething, has announced an extra £16.4m for a 14.5% increase in training places for nursing and midwifery and a 17.7% increase for other health professions.

Over the past five years training places for nurses and midwives have increased by 55.9% and it is the sixth consecutive year the Welsh Government has increased funding for health professional education and training. The overall NHS Wales workforce has grown by 10.4% over the last five years.
From April 2020, Wales will be training more nurses, midwives, radiographers, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists and dieticians than ever before.
The £16.4m extra funding also includes £1.4m for 47 additional Medical Postgraduate training places.
Earlier this month the Health Minister also announced that the target for GP training places in Wales had once again been exceeded. The quota for GP training places increased from 136 to 160 this year and 186 places have been filled.
