Sepsis accounts for 37000 deaths annually in the UK. That is more than bowel cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer put together!

The UK Sepsis Group believes that once sepsis is accepted as a medical emergency and as a clinical priority for the NHS, that we could save up to 12500 lives each year

What is sepsis? It is a life-threatening condition that arises when the body's response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs.

What Can Be Done?
The good news is, life-saving treatment for sepsis is often relatively straightforward. Early recognition and getting basic treatments including antibiotics and fluids into the patient within the first hour can halt the progression of sepsis and hugely improve outcomes for patients
