THE SEPSIS TRUST
The Sepsis trust is a small charity. It was founded in 2012 by Dr Ron Daniels and has a staff of 25. 76% of all income is spent directly on saving lives
One of the people working for the Sepsis Trust is Melissa Mead. 3 years ago, Melissa and her partner Paul woke to find their 1 year old boy, William, had died of Sepsis.
This was avoidable - the lack of awareness of sepsis and the resultant misdiagnosis led to this terrible outcome. Melissa has devoted herself to using William’s story for good; he lives on in his role to raise awareness and effect change right across the NHS, with specific and direct support from Jeremy Hunt.
