Newsquest has launched a national campaign to scrap this academic year's tutition fees for all student nurses, midwives and paramedics who have stepped up for the NHS frontline. 
Launching across more than 150 local newspapers, we are standing behind these young healthcare heroes.

Thousands of student nurses, midwives and paramedics have been thrown into the frontline, helping to make up for a national shortfall in NHS nursing numbers. 
Some are unpaid; many without access to the bursary fund and graduating with huge student debt. And despite their efforts, those graduating this year are expected to foot the annual £9,250 bill for tuition fees to become qualified.
