The new Vernacare website is here! Following the company’s acquisition of Frontier Plastics and Frontier NX in 2020, and subsequent acquisition of Robinson Healthcare in March 2021, it was important for us to create a platform to highlight our comprehensive infection prevention product portfolio and substantial growth. Throughout this article, we’ll walk you through the new website, touching on our content strategy, design process and the features and benefits for site users.

Approximately 300,000 patients in the UK, and 1 in 25 patients in the USA develop a healthcare associated infection (HAI) each year, causing strain on already stretched healthcare systems, the spread of antibiotic-resistant organisms and needless deaths around the world. 

With improved practices, effective products and knowledge sharing, many HAIs are largely preventable. We are working with infection prevention and control specialists to improve understanding on a global scale to reduce HAIs. 

Vernacare offers a varied and comprehensive range of effective solutions for health and social care, with infection prevention and control at the core of everything we do.
