When i trained and worked as a Staff Nurse in Scotland all staff, Trained nurses and students wore the same white dress, our hats, jackets and name badges were blue, if you were a staff nurse or student, green if you were an EN. If you were an auxillary nurse your dress was grey with a white hat and red jacket. We were not allowed to travel to work in our uniform and we had changing facilities on site. Looking back that was so good, i didn't have to wash my dress and starch and iron it, and you did not have to take the hospital smell home with you. When i was living in Winchester i wore the uniform that is pictured. I only had two tunics and one pair of trousers. ( i worked part time)I had to wash them at home, wear it to work and come home in it as there were no changing facilities, the staff toilet was not always a good option as it was shared by two wards. I think nurses in the South of England have always washed their own uniforms, i could be wrong, but one of the Sisters on the ward had been their for a over 20 plus years and it had always been that way.
