Who wears blue scrubs?

In NHS England hospitals, some theatre staff wear light or mid blue scrubs, so do A&E staff nurses, nurses and sisters. Sometimes, NHS England consultants and hospital doctors wear blue theatre scrubs too.

In NHS Scotland hospitals, you’ll see nurses and midwives wearing mid blue uniforms and clinical support staff wearing pale sky-blue uniforms.

In NHS Wales hospitals, scrubs are only worn in operating theatres. However, the following staff do wear blue nursing tunics: staff nurses, sisters / charge nurses, clinical nurse specialists and midwives.

In private hospitals, clinics, veterinary practices, GP surgeries and residential care homes you may see staff wearing blue scrubs too. Each business will have their own proprietary dress code to adhere to. So, as you can see, it’s difficult to be precise about who wears blue scrubs.
