I was watching my favourite drama last night on BBC Three, 'Being Human'. I am a big fan of the acting as well as the star, Aidan Turner. In his role he works in a hospital where the nursing uniforms are of that modern design where nurses, doctors and porters all wear similar garments. The nurses no longer wear those ridiculous starched outfits of the 'carry on' films. Instead they have comfortable tops and trousers that allow them to move and look good.
The actors probably have custom made scrubs, as they do fit particularly well. Each of them wears a different type of nursing scrub uniform as one is a qualified nurse and the other two are porters. I can see why this fashion has spread from the United States to UK hospitals, and i am sure it saves a lot of money on uniform costs.
