NHS Hospitals do not have uniforms for medical staff other than nurses uniforms and scrubs for use in operating theatres. Due to COVID-19, all hospital staff have to change out of their street clothes when they arrive for work. This has resulted in all NHS staff wearing scrubs while at work. The knock on effect has been that some hospitals have a serious shortage of scrubs.
The Scheinberg Relief Fund has provided 1,500 scrubs for staff at St Mary’s Hospital in London.
