Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that affects 250,000 people in the UK every year. 52,000 of those lose their lives to the condition and 79,000 suffer life-changing after-effects. We believe that earlier diagnosis and treatment across the UK would save at least 14,000 lives a year.
The UK Sepsis Trust was founded in 2012 by world-leading sepsis expert and NHS consultant Dr Ron Daniels BEM,
After seeing too many people needlessly from the condition. We seek to save lives from sepsis, and improve outcomes for survivors, by instigating political change, educating healthcare professionals, raising public awareness and providing support for those affected by this devastating condition. We will protect people by enabling the prevention of severe infection and the treatment of sepsis, whist helping to ensure antibiotics are used responsibly.
