10,000 school leavers will be given training by the Prince’s Trust charity and will be hired by the NHS. It is hoped that the new staff intake will help solve the shortage caused by rising demands on the service and falling EU migration.

The new staff will work in non-clinical jobs although some may train as nurses or doctors eventually.
