Notes field at bottom of all tab/step pages

Is it possible to show the same notes field at the bottom of each tab/step page?

I have a very large form page that I’ve split into 5 steps. I’ve placed the SUBMIT button on each page so regardless which tab your in you can save the form however the notes field is currently only available on the first step and I’d like it to appear on each step so users don’t need to switch page to the first page to make notes.

If anyone has any suggestions I’d be very grateful.
Graham.
