Sepsis

Sepsis is potentially a life-threatening condition and is recognised as a significant cause of mortality and morbidity in the NHS, with around 37,000 deaths a year in England attributed to it. Of these, it is estimated that some 11,000 could have been prevented. 

Asking 'Could it be sepsis?' could save lives.

NHS England has produced easy read patient information how to avoid sepsis, the signs of sepsis and problems after sepsis.
