The new state-wide uniform will provide NSW Health employees with a practical and functional uniform in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles.
Work streams will be identifiable by colour to help make staff in our hospitals easily identifiable for patients. These colours will be consistent across the State, ensuring patients can quickly identify staff no matter which hospital they are admitted to.
State-wide uniforms will feature NSW Health branding and allow employees to easily transfer between Local Health Districts (LHDs), eliminating the need to purchase new uniforms.
In preparation for the introduction of the new NSW Health uniform for frontline clinical staff, volunteers were recruited to test the quality and durability of three fabric options in three separate styles.
Volunteers were recruited through the Uniform Implementation Project Steering Committee (PSC) and NSW Nurses Association and tested the fabrics and styles over 30 days while working in their usual clinical roles.
