Medical and dental students who have exhausted all other sources of financial help and are still experiencing financial difficulties may be eligible for an NHS Hardship Grant.

You should apply by email and include:

  • details and evidence of your daily income and expenses
  • evidence that you’ve applied for other funding, such as student loans and university hardship funds

Evidence you can provide could include:

  • bank statements for the last 3 months
  • mortgage statement or tenancy agreement
  • utility bills

Email us your information and use ‘NHS Medical and Dental Hardship application’ as your subject heading.


We’ll work out if there is a shortage between your income and expenses. If there’s a shortfall, we’ll pay you based on this amount.

More information on the NHS Bursary hardship grant is available on our website.
