Senior 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 worn by the head of nursing for each of the trust’s 11 clinical departments – known locally as Clinical Service Centres – as well as the deputy chief nurse and the director of nursing.
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 there being any confusion.”
