The Newry and Armagh MP said, “Student nurses have been key to the fightback against COVID-19, working alongside other health workers to keep people safe and save lives.



“I welcome confirmation of a £2,000 payment from the Executive for all non-salaried students on clinical placement in the health service as a recognition of their hard work.

“The £500 thank you payment for all health and social care workers is also an important recognition of the invaluable work of our health workers through this pandemic.

“Sinn Féin has called on the British government, who are responsible for taxation, to ensure this payment to be tax-free.



The local MP added, “Sinn Féin will continue to stand with health workers and student nurses to make sure they get the support they deserve.”
