I recently started work at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital where the second series of Junior Doctors –Our life in their hands was filmed. During the induction week in August we were greeted by the Chief Executive who set out a new vision for junior doctors attire at the trust. A recent patient satisfaction survey at the hospital revealed that patients felt they couldn’t identify their doctors clearly. To tackle this, new oversized name badges and lab coats were introduced which were compulsory. This news was met with a very mixed response. Some thought it was great; a place to keep their handbooks, stethoscope and biscuits whereas others vehemently opposed this new move. So I pose the question – should junior doctors wear lab coats? If not what should they wear? Does your hospital have a dress code?
