World Sepsis Day – 13th Sep

The 13th September is World Sepsis Day. Help us raise awareness of quick killer.


Sepsis (also known as blood poisoning) is the immune system’s overreaction to an infection or injury. Normally our immune system fights infection – but sometimes, for reasons we don’t yet understand, it attacks our body’s own organs and tissues. If not treated immediately, sepsis can result in organ failure and death. Yet with early diagnosis, it can be treated with antibiotics.

  • 25000 children are affected by sepsis in the UK
  • 1 an 4 sepsis survivors suffer permanent, life-changing after effects
  • 5 people are killed every hour by sepsis in the UK
