You are misinformed. The NHS is largely funded from general taxation.
Just found this thread having had a letter from HMRC about a refund of NI. whilst this seems relatively benign, and i will look at the state pension implications, I am concerned at the tax side, on which we have not yet heard. Whilst i was training, I did claim working tax credits and child credits, so would presume this would need to be repaid, as, if what we have read is right, technically, we were not working, even though I was working for the trust part time (12 hours a week) alongside studying.
Curious to find out peoples experiences on the tax side of things.
As a side note, this came out the of blue in a letter from HMRC - nothing from my trust (whom I no longer work for anyway)
I was just wondering if there have been any successful Open University students who have obtained a refund?
If so did you contact your payroll department for claiming of via HMRC directly.
Look forward to hearing from you.

I found out about the widening access refund from a co worker, who had received an automatic refund in their pay.
I submitted my claim Dec 2016 and my employer still has it.
HMRC have advised me to contact my employer to find out why the form has not been submitted.
I have emailed my employer faithfully but appear to be getting nowhere, hence my post on this site.
The given reasons for not submitting my form are:
Staff sickness caused the delay
They send them to HMRC in bulk
They are chasing other staff to complete their forms before submitting (this last reply has irritated me, as they never once contacted me to claim a refund so why are they chasing other staff members?)
Is this correct or do you think I am being treated unfair? and is there anything else can I do to speed up the process?
I did talk to a tax rebate company but they will take 20% plus VAT from any refund.
any help on this matter would be most appreciated.
we worked full time, over the15k but several of us have heard we have been declined. some all of it, some just NI for now but waiting to hear about the tax.
I just wonder how/why we are hearing different when we have colleagues in same trust who did exactly the same course on same wage etc who have received 4-6K+ back for national insurance and tax refunds?!
anyone any idea on best next steps also??
