The Australian Healthcare industry employs over 900,000 staff across a range of sectors including public, private and non-for-profit hospital organisations, specialist areas like pathology and Imaging, aged and community care organisations.
Given this vast range of services and occupations, Bizwear understands the need for highly functional, durable and well-designed healthcare uniforms to meet all requirements. Given the day to day working environment in the healthcare industry, it is commonplace for professionals to prefer to wear a uniform.
Uniform SolutionsHealth Our Approach
Bizwear can provide a distinctive uniform design and select uniform garments from Bizwear’s Healthcare “stock service” range to define your new image. Sometimes, a mix of both options can be the best solution.
Bizwear combines its in-depth operational understanding of staff functions and hierarchies in Healthcare organisations with the flexibility offered by its online ordering system, Styleman, to develop customised online ordering sites. As a result, Bizwear’s online ordering sites control the expenditure on uniforms and reduce the administrative burden of this high emotion and high transaction category.

6,000 staff, 5 Hospitals, 6 clinics – based in Victoria
Bizwear’s ability to actively demonstrate its online ordering capability was a significant factor when selected as the new supplier to Epworth Health. Epworth especially liked Bizwear’s proven ability to upload a weekly employee file from Epworth’s payroll system which then provides an online uniform entitlement for each employee or modify an entitlement if an employee changes work role, hours worked or location.
When appointed, Bizwear provided and controlled a detailed contract transition plan which included the transfer of the incumbent’s stock and fabric across to Bizwear, which was loaded into Bizwear’s stock. This ensured ordering would first look at this stock before ordering the new Bizwear stock.
Bizwear also operates a staff fitting service whereby we manage an onsite uniform room especially designed with changing cubicles and stock of every size of garment and style at Epworth Richmond.
HealthCase Study RDNS - Mobile/Community Nursing Services
A Long-Standing Partnership.
Bizwear has supplied RDNS for over 7 years and over this time has designed two unique uniform ranges. The latest uniform range was rolled out in 2013 and it linked in with re-branding across the entire organisation. Bizwear facilitated numerous employee feedback workshops and provided a number of design concepts and fabrics for consideration. Uniform samples were provided as the last step before sign off – then production commenced.
RDNS requested that a “special release” of the new uniform be given to all staff above their annual uniform entitlements which are provided on each employees own anniversary date. This “special release” required some unique programing to allow for this single ordering “event”. The rollout of the new uniform was an operational success and staff feedback about the new designs has been very favourable.
