What is Sepsis?   A new action plan has been published (Dec 2015) by NHS England to recognise and treat Sepsis promptly which is the body’s reaction to infection, where it attacks its own organs and tissues which can lead to organ failure, shock and death. A urinary tract infection can lead to Sepsis if not treated appropriately and quickly, and it accounts for 37,000 deaths in UK, more than breast cancer, bowel and prostrate cancer put together.   NHS England reports there is “significant variation in the training provided to different professional groups” to identify sepsis.  See this leaflet What-is-Sepsis Leaflet under our Useful Documents section from the home page or see www.sepsistrust.org
