Sepsis is the disease you’ve never heard of - and that health professionals aren't aware of- which is why 44,000 people in the UK die from it every year.
That’s more than Bowel, Breast and Prostate cancers combined.....It’s a bit of a silent assassin because the symptoms in children can look like flu, virus type symptoms. Yet sepsis can and is fatal in a very rapid timeline.
The sepsis trust wants to tackle this and raise awareness of all of us! The irony is, once identified, sepsis can be stopped in its tracks with antibiotics!
