UK SEPSIS TRUST AND NHS ENGLAND LAUNCH LIFE-SAVING SEPSIS AWARENESS CAMPAIGN FOR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS
Tuesday 22nd November saw the launch of a national sepsis awareness campaign designed by the UK Sepsis Trust and delivered in partnership with NHS England to better educate healthcare professionals on sepsis.
The initiative, which encourages all healthcare professionals to ‘act quickly’ when they recognise sepsis, will increase the speed with which the condition is diagnosed and treated across the NHS. Campaign materials will bear the NHS logo and will feature on the back of ambulances and Out of Hours doctors cars and pharmacy prescription bags all over England. The communications remind healthcare workers to ‘Just Ask “could it be sepsis?”’, as well as highlighting symptoms using a ‘SEPSIS’ acronym.
