Should the workers in the NHS be reconized as a colour???

NHS Health care Featured Image 5

The NHS is a busy place everyone has diffrent have diffrent names,diffrent features and diffrent personalitys. So you can see that it isn't very hard to reconize someone, so should workers be reconized as a colour? Heres what we think.

Well lets be honest it is not necessary but it could help the staff there. If they can recognise workers as colours then it will be a lot easier and quicker to find them.


Well with 1000s of patients coming in and out a day,it will make it a lot easier. If they wanted to find someone they could just focus for looking at the colour that they wear. This would help because if there was an emergency than staff would be able to find workers quicker so then they can help. This might also help because the NHS have a shortage of staff at the minute which is obviously not the best,but if they can find staff quicker their problem of staff shortage might go away.

But what colour would you be, we have researched and found out that each colour actually has emotions and here are what they mean.

Blue- this colour means that you in a person is very loyal,trustworthy and has a lot of confidence.

Red- this colour means that you in a person is very bold Andy have passion within what you do.

Yellow- this colour means that you In a person I very happy with what you do as a living.

Green- you are a very well being and emotional person.

Purple- you are a very calm and chill full person. You take pride in what you do and you enjoy luxurious things.

Pink- you are a very sweet person who has great friendships.

Khaki- you always stick to what you say.

black-you are very mysterious person and you are very formal.

white- you are very positive with everything you do.

Orange- you are very creative and joyful.

Aqua- you have a very strong attitude and you are always there to uplift someone s mood.

Beige-you are a very pleasing person.

Coral-you have a lot of energy and you always like wearing vibrant outfits.

Grey- you are very formal but sometimes you get in a mood.

If workers do do not agree with this then they could just wear the top of the colour you must wear.

I hope you like our post. What colour would you be? comment down below.

    This is an interesting idea but I wonder whether it would bring many advantages to the way patients are treated. When people go to a hospital or doctors' surgery, it is likely that they want the best medical care possible, and so are not too interested in people's personalities. Can you suggest why it would be useful, or help to treat people better or more quickly?

      It would be useful because if say someone was a doctor or nurse for something specific,like doing x rays or surgery. Doctors and nurses would be able to look for the colour that they are wearing and it will be quicker to find them, but if they all wore the same colour it would take longer to recognise them.

        ...But how would someone feel if they were forced to wear grey clothes, deeming them grumpy. How would they feel? Anyways, who would decide who is grumpy and who is happy?...After all we are human and have our grumpy and bad moments- sometimes we are happy, sometimes we are sad! This is my thinking behind why making NHS workers wear different clothes depending on their personality would be a horrible, ghastly idea.

          It's good to give your reasons about why you disagree, but language like "horrible" and "ghastly" is very strong and could be seen to be disrespectful. Let's make sure that we provide useful feedback to other BNC members so they can improve and develop their ideas.

            Okay, thanks for the feedback. I got a little too carried away with my opinion! What I meant to say was the idea of defining NHS workers by coloured clothes would be 'wrong' and a little 'over the top!' I'm sorry if the language I used was a little too strong, I do get carried away with my writing sometimes.

    I very much disagree with your opinion genius_chocolate and daring_date. My reasoning behind this is as follows.
    Firstly, feel empathy. How would a surgeon in grey clothes feel if he is made to wear clothes with such a poor meaning, anyway, how would you decide if someone gets moody lots- everyone does, we're human after all! Elaborating on this point, an NHS nurse or doctor is supposed to be happy and well, not grumpy and mistreated which is exactly how a person wearing grey clothing will feel- mistreated. As Olivia@BNC said, why would your personality be important when you are an NHS worker, all it would do is make things more complex. The current system of wearing different clothes depending on your task, like a surgeon would wear scrubs if they are doing an operation, is good enough to locate people and manage teams. Looking at the other ideas for colours for clothing like black, would it matter if you are mysterious and very formal at the NHS? Probably not! To conclude, having a system of clothing depending on your personality would brings lots if complaints and it would not work very well thanks to no distinguishable difference between actual NHS professions.

    I completely disagree with you, I am sure that the NHS workers won't want to be defined by a colour. I do not understand how it would be quicker to find someone in the NHS if they are wearing a certain colour, I understand that the NHS is short of 100,000 staff but there is still a lot of staff that work at each hospital, there is definitely going to be more than one staff member in the hospital that wear yellow for example in the same way that their will definitely be more than two people called Tom Dick or Harry. The NHS has much bigger problems on their hands than what staff wear, the NHS has half as much beds as in 2010, a decrease by 150,000, I'm sure they will want to deal with this more than what staff wear.

    Yes and no
    Some are different and no one is the same but they might have something that they like that someone can be the same they both like Apple or they like salt and vinegar chips but some one might like pink but this other person might not like pink but like blue no on is the same.Your creatively with your colour but some of your colour meaning but they could of done of a pushing but every thing everything else is spot on!

    But I all so agree with the other people that they also very confused versatile molecule said there 100,000 staff and more they are trying to get more money to help people they don’t want to waste money on that t-shirt.

    But that was a great idea but I don’t think that might work. :)
