Ten years ago, Dr Ron Daniels was motivated to create the UK Sepsis Trust after witnessing the tragic and preventable death of 37-year-old father of two, Jem Abbots. He knew that with the proper awareness and training, early diagnosis and treatment could save many lives.
Since then we’ve been hard at work empowering millions of people to spot the signs of sepsis. Alongside the support of our partners, we’ve been able to support thousands of struggling families and provide educational and clinical tools to improve the diagnosis and treatment of sepsis.
However, with more than 48,000 people still dying of sepsis every year and over 60,000 survivors left with life-altering challenges, our work is far from done.
Help us celebrate our birthday by making sure more people can celebrate theirs.
Our 10th birthday year gives us the perfect opportunity to ‘power up’ in the fight against sepsis. We want to sign 10,000 organisations to our ‘Sepsis Savvy’ awareness initiative, to train 10,000 healthcare professionals and to support 10,000 families affected by the silent killer. But to do that, we need YOU to use your power – however you can.
