So, earlier this week, I wrote a very brief blog about a visit to Nottingham where I met some of the staff from the Medicines for Children Research Network (MCRN) in the East.
They have recently adopted a new ‘red for research’ uniform that all staff have to wear in clinical settings. You can read more about it in their newsletter here including the different reactions of patients and other staff. At the time I asked whether we should adopt the ‘red for research’ tunic across the NIHR Local Clinical Research Networks (LCRNs)
I have not done a poll on the blog for a long time he says with sweated brow….

I think a green tunic could be a less threatening option, but your poll didn’t cater for this.
Indeed it didn’t. I didn’t want to do a ‘choose your colour’ poll….although perhaps I should have.
MCRN East staff wear this Red for Research uniform and we have never hada problem with the colour. In fact one Nurse is also a Scout leaders where she wears a red polo shirt as chosen by the cubs and scouts. Our team in clinic find the colour to be very engaging with children and young people.
