Deciding on uniforms for your private healthcare practice can be tricky. There will no doubt be several different departments that may require totally separate uniforms from one another, for example you may want your doctors to wear a smart uniform of shirts and blazers, whereas nurses may require healthcare tunics or scrubs. For ease of differentiation of the hierarchy of positions and different roles in the workplace, here’s a Simon Jersey uniform guide to help you decide on your healthcare workwear.
Your receptionist team is the first point of call for all your patients, so what they wear is very important and can impact on how at ease patients feel visiting the practice. Reception staff wearing a brightly coloured or patterned blouse creates warm and inviting atmosphere, whereas wearing a white shirt and trousers could make your staff seem unapproachable. At Simon Jersey we have recently released a selection of new blouses that are featured in the receptionist uniform range, including a brand-new blouse design for the new season. The tie-neck capped sleeve blouse is still professional, but with trend-lead additions your staff will enjoy the versatility of the tie with a different way to style it, so they can create a new look almost every day.
When staff feel good in their uniform it shows in their work, so giving your team a uniform that they enjoy wearing will show your patients that they are being looked after by a professional team that cares.
Deciding on your nurse uniforms can be straightforward when it comes to choosing the right look for your practice. This is a more functional garment that must adhere to certain health and safety criteria. All of the Simon Jersey medical tunics, medical dresses and scrubs are made with infection-compliant materials to keep germs at bay, and the medical tunics and dresses feature a concealed zip to reduce accidents on the job.
We have a large range of colours to choose from in our nurse uniform department. There’s the traditional navy nurse uniform with white piping, medical tunic and matching navy scrubs, and lighter alternatives such as the lilac medical tunic with white piping or eau de nil scrubs. The brighter colours will make your clinic feel less sterile and, as with the receptionist uniforms, could put patients more at ease during their time there.
To suit the appropriate setting, doctors usually have a uniform that is less medical focused, and more like businesswear. Your appearance as a doctor is probably the most important to your patients, as they need to have trust in who they are talking to and having a more professional appearance can help this. Our new Alderley suiting collection is made from high quality fabric and comes in several different colours depending on your individual style. The male jacket and trousers in the collection come in three different fits, so every doctor can wear the same suit but in a style that they feel comfortable in. The women’s range features shift and A line dresses, as well as A line skirts and straight skirts available in all colourways. This will allow for style versatility for your female doctors while still adhering to a professional uniform code. Patients will notice their doctors appearance instantly and will feel as though they are in more of a professional environment.
Why Healthcare Uniforms Are Important
When working in a busy medical facility it can be hard to keep up with who’s who and what their roles are. A good way to keep track of your staff and help patients identify who they need is to get your medical tunics, medical dresses and scrubs embroidered with names and occupations. This will make patients feel more at ease while also making staff appear more approachable. If they can recognise a doctor or nurse’s name straight away it’s more likely that they will feel on a personal level with their professional. It also helps with orientation of other members of staff, especially new starters who may not be familiar with the departments. At Simon Jersey we can embroider your name, profession and clinic logo onto most products with our personalisation service.
