The UK Sepsis Trust
Is on a mission
To mend Sepsis

Our work

Our team seeks to save lives and improve outcomes for survivors of sepsis by instigating political change, educating healthcare professionals, raising public awareness and providing support for those affected by this devastating condition.

Our critical expertise is based on the charity’s grassroots origins – our doctors and nurses have front line, first-hand experience of the sepsis problem; their passion is born of a uniquely comprehensive understanding of what needs to be done.

The urgent need to improve sepsis care in the UK drives us forward as we continue to work in hospitals whilst giving time to advance the sepsis agenda.
