    I'm not impressed! I've lost weight, and my uniform is now too big on me, luckily i dont need to wear it until october, so im going to re-order a new set at the start of september, anyway I went into the office today, with my old set, telling them it was too big now, and asked about re-ordering and cost...

    and she told me i'd be expected to pay for the new set myself...

    http://www.alexandra.co.uk/prodDetai...e=Dress&lmt=NA - £20!!!!! £20!!! and thats just for the dress, and i hate the dresses

    The tunic and trousers are much worse, £18 just for the tunic!! http://www.alexandra.co.uk/prodDetai...e=Tunic&lmt=NA

    I'm going to atleast need a set of 3, I have no idea how im going to afford this, is there any help i can dip into, ie the RCN, uni?

    If you're really in need (i.e. can prove fiscally), potentially uni hardship funds...but don't know if they'd do it or not.

    I went through several sets of (bottle green) trousers during my placements - such is life!

    Hehe...except I haven't gone into clinical (both good and bad, as I love what I'm doing, but really miss clinical)...non-clinical clothing is more expensive
