Sepsis - more deadly than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined

Every year in the UK there are 150,000 cases of Sepsis, resulting in a staggering 44,000 deaths – more than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined.

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. Sepsis leads to shock, multiple organ failure and death especially if not recognised early and treated promptly.  Please read the information provided by the Sepsis Trust and complete their learning modules on their website.
