Raising awareness of Sepsis

Sepsis, which is sometimes referred to as blood poisoning or septicaemia, is a reaction to an infection in which the body attacks its own organs and tissues. It can affect anyone at any age.

Sepsis affects over 25,000 children in the UK every year. Sepsis can occur following any infection and there is no one sign of sepsis. So if your child is unwell, with either a fever or a very low temperature or has had a fever within the last 24 hours; Just ask: Could it be Sepsis?

The more quickly Sepsis is recognised and treated the better the outcome.

The leaflet below “What every Parent needs to know about Sepsis” contains further information:
