We're so excited to introduce you to our beautiful Lucy & Yak scrubs!
Our wonderful team of seamstresses in Barnsley have been hard at work throughout lockdown making scrubs for lots of fabulous NHS workers, which we've been donating to various hospitals around the country (read more about that and how you can get involved with personal donations in our blog here!)
We had a huge number of messages asking if these would be available to buy individually, as many hospital staff have to purchase their own scrubs and uniforms, or your place of work was outside of the UK or not eligible to receive donations, and you wanted a piece of the L&Y scrub action! We wanted to make that happen and our team have halted production on our planned Made in Britain range to instead create 6 colours of scrubs, made right here in Yorkshire, UK.
The fabric we've used is NHS approved and is a 195gsm 65% polyester, 35% cotton (unfortunately there aren't any more sustainable options here) and are fully washable at 60 degrees - in Royal Blue, Navy, Forest Green, Emerald Green, Purple and Maroon. We're selling them as separates as feedback showed most people buy different sizes in each.
The trousers have a generous drawstring waist, two square back pockets, straight leg.
Matching top available here, with a roomy fit, generous short sleeves, V neck with two front pockets and side slits.
If you didn't know already, we offer a 20% NHS discount (details here!) At this time we're still only able to offer this to NHS email addresses.

Nice trousers. Hate the skinny elastic drawstring, never feels tight or secure.
I wouldn’t have bought them if I realised this was the drawstring. I’ve tried them and washed them otherwise I would have returned them.
Thanks for leaving us a review on these, I was the one who responded to your email. And I'm sorry if it came across as anything negative - You asked if we had an alternative, which we don't have. I was under the impression that you wanted to try something different with them to make them work. If you aren't happy with the elastic on these, you are more than welcome to pop them back to us for a full refund!
Sorry for any confusion!
Generously sized (I am a solid 14, 5ft 4 and got a medium). Good back and side pockets in trousers but long length so do look better turned up as in the photos! Would need to be a good few inches taller not to. Quite low on bottom so need drawstring firmly pulled! I like them like this but does have a casual look and may need taken up for some work places. Top is a flattering shape. Sturdy fabric. Can be washed at 60 but NOT tumble dried. Come with two nice bags.
I’m a size 8/10 5’4 and these are huge for me. I had the smallest size but there big in every way. I have loads of other Lucy and yak items which fit in a small. Unfortunately I excitedly took all the tags of and washed so them before work before I realised just got big they were otherwise I’d have returned them.
Thanks for taking the time out to leave us a review, we really appreciate it! I'm so sorry to hear these didn't work out for you! It's so unfortunate these didn't fit you, it might be worth replying to this review (I'll also pop it through as an email) and maybe we can compare the measurements against our sizing guide, just to make sure these haven't mislabelled or anything like that! Please don't hesitate to reach out and we can see what can be done!
Love the colour of the trousers.
Slightly too short for me at 6ft tall.
Love the drawstring trousers good for having a large lunch
But not high waisted enough and find myself pulling them up making them look even shorter on me.
I’m a size 12 and the medium is too big.
Sizing is off.
They are made and sourced locally and responsibly though :)
Perfect- pockets aren’t vital! Comfortable and easy to get on and off!
