Charity information: United Kingdom Sepsis Trust
Sepsis is the bodies overwhelming response to an infection. There is widespread poor knowledge amongst both the public and professionals. Simply early recognition and treatment may save lives.
By distributing leaflets so the public can know about this devastating illness may help people to present at their GP or hospital earlier.

What success will look like
Achieving the required funding
Through national data collection we can see how many people present with sepsis. We can display national survival rates, which will be attributable to a multi-action approach.
Lack of funding, lack of awareness. We are constantly working to raise awareness through multiple sources
We will communicate through multiple social communication sites
