Hospital gown redesign

10th February 2010

One of the world’s top designers Ben de Lisi is to give the traditional draughty and backless hospital gown a makeover for the NHS.

The aim of the new gown, which will be unveiled by the Design Council in March, is to help preserve a patient’s modesty as part of an NHS project to preserve dignity and follows criticism that old gowns often left patients laid bare. Health Minister Ann Keen said the designer gowns would be introduced into NHS hospitals in England by early 2011.
