Warwick Med is leading the change from disposable theatre caps to reusable “name and role” cloth hats. These are already boosting staff morale and reducing patients’ anxiety as they enable everyone to identify the people around them, quickly and easily. 


“The biggest difference I noticed was on Monday when people addressed me by my name a lot more than usual” “The team huddle is all well and good in the morning, but I don’t remember everyone’s names and if we had named caps for everyone that would be great”  Dr Mruga Diwan, Royal Liverpool


Our mission is to improve communication among healthcare professionals and patients by sharing best practice and promoting the many benefits of our eco-friendly, personalised caps.

For A Safer NHS

“Medical errors in hospitals are the third leading cause of death in the United States, just behind heart disease and cancer. Globally it is believed that medical errors kill more people than HIV, Malaria, and Tuberculosis, combined”.  (Patient safety network, 2020).

For A Greener NHS
