Hospital staff

Identifying hospital staff

You will be able to identify staff by their uniforms (see descriptions below). All uniforms have the job role of the wearer clearly identified on the right breast pocket, all employees wear a hospital identification badge which will also denote their job role – if this is not visible please ask who they are and to see their badge. If you are still not satisfied please call a member of the ward staff.
