Maggie Pearson is wrong not to worry where the funding comes from for medical education ("Harassed, pulled every which way, but committed to her workers", THES , June 7).
University-level education for nurses has been reduced to a shadow of its former self since funding shifted from the higher education funding council to the National Health Service.
In addition, research funding has also disappeared. Is this what she wants for medicine?
