In no other business are personal dress, cleanliness, conduct and appearance as important as they are in health care services. First impressions count not only in the way we help and treat patients and visitors but also in our appearance.
The UK HealthCare LookBook was created to reinforce the importance of standard dress and serve as a guide for managers and frontline staff.
The way you dress tells our patients and guests you are a caring professional who values the quality of care UK HealthCare has to offer. When they see you, they know they are in the right place and that you are here to help.
