The National Healthcare Uniform Project is a proposal put forward by NHS Supply Chain: Hotel Services to introduce a nationally standardised uniform across the NHS in England.

A national uniform will offer a strong national identity and utilise the buying power of the NHS by delivering cost savings.

Originally launched in the summer of 2019, the project was paused during 2020 due to more important priorities relating to the pandemic. The initial reaction to the proposal from both patients and healthcare professionals appears to be positive.
