The Royal College of Nursing has warned that the NHS in London is "sleepwalking into a nursing crisis".
The RCN says that cuts to staffing numbers will damage patient care.
According to their figures, 28,000 jobs have been cut from the NHS in England over the last two years and a further 32,000 jobs are at risk.
They are particularly concerned about cuts to the number of nurses being trained up in London.
Places have fallen by 21 per cent over the last year - a much steeper drop than the rest of the country.
