Scrub Up! Start making the difference. – COVID 19

In response to the COVID  – 19 Pandemic, in collaboration with Elliss we have designed and open sourced a set of instructions to make scrubs at home and send them into hospital where they are most needed. The process can be carried out by anyone, novices or professionals and you won’t need to print them out, the files contain instructions to draw the pattern and assemble the scrubs.

It doesn’t matter whether you make one pair or a hundred, healthcare services are under serious strain and need all the help they can get.

The Scrub Up project is based in the UK and we are currently aiming our help towards the NHS but we are keen for it to travel if there is a need in other parts of the world. If you have information regarding your health care services abroad please get in touch with us and we will do everything in our power to extend the reach of the project.

Before you get started please read the fabric guidelines and hospital requirements in the two google docs linked below, it is essential that you do this to provide hospital workers with the right equipment and avoid sending contaminated garments to the wrong place.

These can also be found at our Facebook page which is continuously updated with live information: Scrub Up!
