In the same year, there were 691,000 nurses registered in the UK, down 1,783 from the previous year. However, this is the first time nursing numbers have fallen since 2008 and there are 13,000 more nurses in the NHS than in 2010. Poor working conditions, staffing levels and workload also dissatisfaction with the quality of patient care were given as reasons as were poor pay and benefits. Saffron Cordery of NHS Providers said, "These figures provide further evidence of the severe workforce problems NHS trusts face. Burseries to nursing students are to be stopped forcing nurses to pay for their training, it is expected this will also be a discouragement.  Commentators are increasingly arguing that staffing shortages are endangering the sustinability of the NHS. There are too few health workers, nurses and midwives, doctors are also in short supply. Hospitals, Community Trusts and Mental Health Trusts all face shortages.
