Will new national nursing uniform help distinguish nurses’ roles?
Colour-coding of the new national uniform for nurses and other health professionals that should – in theory – help everyone know who’s who, has its critics
The NHS recently revealed the new uniform and colourways for nurses in England.
Nursing staff will be differentiated by colours and shades, with for example, nursing associates in sky blue, nurses in hospital blue and matrons in purple.
But many nurses criticised the new uniform on social media, calling the colour palette confusing, and suggesting Agenda for Change bandings should be identified in uniforms.
