Nurses get red uniforms

11th March 2011

Senior nurses at a Hampshire hospital have been given new red uniforms.

The nurses at Portsmouth’s Queen Alexandra Hospital have moved away from traditional shades of nursing blue in favour of a high visibility red uniform. They are being worn by the head of nursing for each of the trust’s 11 clinical departments as well as the deputy chief nurse and the director of nursing. The hospital’s director of nursing Julie Dawes said the new uniforms will help patients, staff and visitors alike to know who is a head of nursing without any confusion.
