[Koha] Hold notification not sending to current borrower

Hi all,
I would like some clarification on an issue I am having.
I have setup hold notifications and enabled the function emailLibrarianWhenHoldIsPlaced and that is all working fine and sending emails as it should.
What I am finding though is that if 'Student A' has a resource on loan and 'Student B' places a hold the Library staff will get an email advising of the resource hold as expected, however 'Student A' who has the book doesn't get notified by email that a hold has been placed.
Is it possible to notify the current resource holder by email that a hold has been placed or is this functionality not in Koha?
