Petition Against Locum Work Wear

415 Signatures Goal: 1,500

Boots Opticians would like everyone to feel good when they come to work. But I'm sure you would agree most of us would find it difficult to 'feel good' in the new work wear.

We don't believe wearing the uniform would impact on the patients journey other than to add to the patients confusion as DO's, Student DO's and Pre Regs all wear the same uniform.

To top it off we are expected to pay for the privilege.

Please add your name to the list and forward so we can help to reverse this decision.

Thanks

    You cannot indoctrinate professional people into your way of thinking.
    Thats what Boots are trying to do.
    They remind me of a communist state such as North korea. I reckon they will be telling me how to cut my hair next.
    Their thinking is fatally flawed. I have never seen them this desperate for Optom cover before.
    Im not locuming for them any more. Im totally sick of them. A bunch of arrogant egotistical morons who survive off the backs of a successful chemists reputation and business.

    did they show the uniform to the focus group? and thought they were moving away from white because patients felt anxious when they saw health prof in their white coat 'white coat syndrome'.on top of that now we're supposed to look like a bunch of beauticians, nurses and lab technician. there's a new website thelocumunion.com that's been brought to my attention where anyone interested can post comments.
