Polycare Biodegradable aprons

As part of our commitment to the environment and sustainability, GV Health have introduced a new Polycare range of single-use biodegradable aprons. Biodegradable aprons ensure speedier breakdown when discarded into landfill, where the majority of disposable polythene aprons are currently sent following use. Adjustable to fit all shapes and builds. Supplied on rolls for easy dispensing. Applicable for use in all departments and medical specialisations including nursing, midwifery, infection control, domestic, paediatric and theatre.

Key Features

  • Single use, fully biodegradable
  • 18 – 36 months to break down time in landfill
  • Standard quantity = 5 rolls of 200 aprons in biodegradable sleeves
  • CE Certified
  • Boxed in cardboard outers which can be recycled.

Duty of Care

GV Health has taken important steps to reduce the amount of virgin polythene and significantly increase the amount of recycled material across our complete range of healthcare disposables.

  • less polythene pollution of seas and seashores improves wildlife environments and ecosystems
  • reduces the need for incineration, currently a major challenge in the UK due to limited number of sites that can recycle the large tonnage of plastic used

China Stops Accepting Plastic Waste

China was the world’s largest importer of plastic waste, including millions of tonnes from the UK’s NHS. In October 2017 China ended all imports of plastic waste leaving the UK and many other countries with a serious problem to process and recycle plastic.

The UK Government is investing in new recycling plants but is many years away from being able to manage the quantity of plastic waste currently produced, meaning landfill is often the only available option. As a main approved supplier to the NHS, GV Health is working with partners to ensure the most sustainable way forward in terms of product and disposal.


A range of wall mounted dispensers suitable for use with our aprons is available. Both flat-packed aprons and rolled aprons can be dispensed, saving space, reducing clutter, increasing visibility and reducing infection risk. See chart below for dispenser sizes and roll types. Please check with your sales contact to ensure the dispenser you have selected is suitable for the aprons you are purchasing. Dispensers are individually packed and supplied with fittings to enable wall mounting by a competent maintenance engineer using standard tools.
