The aim of this report is to highlight the considerable costs associated with sepsis in the UK.  Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition caused by infection from numerous potential sources.  In more severe forms it results in hospital admission and the most severe forms require treatment in intensive care.  There is a high mortality rate associated with patients with sepsis.  This implies significant costs to both the health care system and society more broadly.
