LJMU fashion student designs new local NHS Trust uniform
May '13
Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust (LCH) has been working with LJMU fashion students to design new staff uniforms. LCH embarked on the project to enable staff to wear a modern uniform when working out in community locations across Liverpool and Sefton.

Fifteen initial designs were received from the students, which included jackets, coats, fleeces and cardigans using the latest styles and fabrics.

Staff from across the Trust was also involved in developing the new garments, from suggesting ways to improve their current uniforms, to voting on their favourite student design.

The winning LCH new uniform designs were developed by student Katie Berry, and were showcased at the Liverpool School of Art and Design’s Degree Show.

Bernie Cuthel, Chief Executive of Liverpool Community Health, said: “It has been great to develop closer partnership working with LJMU through this project. The students have delivered some really innovative uniform designs which are not only practical, but will help enable patients and their families to clearly identify our staff working in patients’ homes and communities across Liverpool and Sefton”.

Senior Lecturer Lesley Peacock added: “When LCH approached us to ask if our students could design new uniforms for them, we were delighted. It is fantastic for the students to work with such a high profile organisation and on a project they can really get their teeth into, with a genuine and specific brief to adhere to.

"The fact that Katie, our winner, will now see her designs become a reality, and transformed into a uniform for thousands of NHS workers across the region, is a real coup and we are very grateful to LCH for giving the students the opportunity to take part in the competition.”
