    So I have work experience at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and their dress code is:

    Clinical Dress Code Policy
    1. In the Clinical environment everyone should be bare below the elbows
    2. No finger or wrist jewellery (wedding band exempt)
    3. Nails must be short, false nails and varnish must not be worn


    All Staff Dress Code Policy
    1. Clothing and appearance must project a professional image and must not cause embarrassment or offence to patients, colleagues, other staff or visitors to the Trust
    2. Clothing must be clean, safe, smart and in good state of repair.
    3. Clean odour free clothes
    4. Footwear must be clean and smart and not put the wearer at risk of injury
    5. Very casual or high fashion trousers e.g. ripped jeans, denim, leggings etc. are not permitted

    Are plain black and grey turtle necks okay? I don't really own blouses and i'm not sure what to wear. Also, are school shoes okay and considered smart and safe?

    I think a turtle neck would be okay when paired with the right trousers /skirt

    Yes school shoes are smart and safe. Dark clothing is smart. Turtle necks may be considered abit casual. I’m not sure. For a hospital a smart shirt and school trousers may be suitable. Bearing in mind the weather it may be permitted if it’s cold. Comfortability is key though.

    Sorry, slightly obscure reference. I'm afraid that I don't have anything of significance to add to the discussion

    Not an Archer reference?

    To the OP: I think a turtleneck will be fine. It covers everything up they've asked to be covered up, and I see women (and men) wearing them in workplaces all the time (albeit not super-smart workplaces).

    I assume you're going to be in the clinical environment from your post, but if not then you could probably pair the turtleneck with a blazer or something.

    I'm just going to see. I'm going to wear the turtle neck for the induction and if there are any problems i'm going to wear something else for when i actually start. I'm not too sure on what I will be doing all I know is I am going to be in a ward. I'm guessing its clinical.

    Great if you are, in fact, a French philosopher.
