How to Choose the Right Scrub Suit for Your Profession

A little about Harvey’s Workwear

At Harvey’s Workwear, our priority has always been to ensure your team members are properly equipped, whether that be in a medical scrub or a sophisticated full office suit. We have proudly supplied many professions with workwear, direct from the UK, since 1950.

Our main passion, in particular, is supplying the care sector with appropriate, protective medical scrubs and uniforms, including high-quality, medical-grade scrubs and tunics.

We value the tireless, invaluable work of all within the care sector and want to provide them with the best quality workwear possible. This is so they can fulfil such vital roles in comfort, security, and knowledge that each workwear item will serve them for many years to come.

Alongside the care sector, we also supply:

Within this article, we will explain how to choose the right type of scrub for your profession and teams. We understand there is an enormous range to choose from and depending on the profession, needs and skills involved, the scrub range can hugely vary. The choice can feel a little intimidating, which is something we don’t want you to feel. At Harvey’s, we want each of our clients to be confident in their choices. As always, if there are still any unanswered questions, feel free to contact one of our team, who would be happy to help you.

Industries and professions we supply

As you’ll see from the extensive range on our website, we supply workwear to many professions. The scrubs we provide are bespoke to the sector within which they are used. We provide scrub uniform for the following sectors:

Choosing the right scrub – the fit

Our advice when choosing the right scrub for your workplace has to be the fit and comfort of the scrub. Your team will spend most of, if not all of their working day in their scrubs, so comfort and ease of movement are the top priorities. The fit should feel ‘right,’ not being too tight or too loose.

The colour is also important, as colours are usually associated with certain professions. NHS workers tend to wear green or blue, for example. Depending on the role and duties undertaken, colour needs to be considered.

Choosing the right scrub – the cost

We appreciate that within any profession, keeping unnecessary costs to a minimum is always a crucial factor. Depending on your budget, we are proud to supply high-quality, low-cost alternatives too. These are best purchased when the scrubs will not be customer facing in this case, the ST10 scrubs would be most suitable.  This type of scrub is best suited to cleaning professions and medical sectors, where the likely hood of being in front of a customer is low and therefore practicality is the priority opposed to style.

Customer-facing roles

For professions that are more customer-facing, such as vets, pharmacies and care homes, the following scrubs clothing would be advised:

630

NN300
NN310
NN200

 

Other factors when choosing scrubs

Other factors need to be taken into consideration when choosing the correct scrubs for your profession. As well as the cost, the fit and the profession itself, it’s also worthwhile to consider the following factors, as they can influence the decision:

  • Length required – short, or longer scrubs
  • Sleeve types
  • Colours (in terms of darker tones or lighter shades)
  • Embroidered or plain
  • White or coloured
  • Pockets (whether patch or non)
  • Basic tunic style or more stylish

We look forward to helping you choose the perfect scrubs for your profession. Feel free to contact us today, either through our website, email or by calling one of our team on 0161 624 9535.
