Healthcare award finalist
10 April 2014
Medical devices innovator and manufacturer Vernacare is a finalist in a national healthcare excellence award – the Medilink UK Awards for Partnership Working with the NHS – having won the North West regional final in December 2013.
"We are honoured to have an opportunity to compete with the UK's most innovative businesses in the national awards," Vernacare's Emma Sheldon said. "We must pay tribute to the support of NHS Trusts in helping us to develop and bring to market our pioneering new VernaFem disposable female urinal, which is improving continence care for immobile patients."
As a single-use pulp product VernaFem helps prevent cross infection, increasing patient safety and helping to reduce the spiralling cost of healthcare acquired infections.
