    Background: New uniforms for British nurses were on display at the annual London Nursing Exhibition and Conference, October 13.

    The new design, based on the Empire line, is finding favour with the girls who will have to wear it. It dispenses with cuffs and has a more comfortable neck.

    Also on display at the exhibition was an oxygen carrying cot which enables a sick baby to be transported by aircraft, car or ambulance.
