We’re lucky to have a great team of people across the UK who use their expertise, passion and knowledge to advance the fight against sepsis. They range from doctors, nurses, fundraisers and support workers, to our tireless trustees and the ambassadors who raise our profile.
I founded the charity in 2012 seeing too many people die needlessly as an NHS Consultant in Intensive Care. I’m now privileged to be able to save lives globally by providing solutions and by influencing change through advising the UK Government and World Health Organisation.
My interest and experience working in the voluntary sector spans decades! In order to save more lives we’re looking for a ‘call to action’: one that develops and builds partnerships that genuinely benefit both organisations. This is one of my main responsibilities which I’m fortunate to be doing as it’s something I both believe in and enjoy.
In my clinical role as an NHS consultant anaesthetist I see the devastating effects of sepsis first hand. I joined the UK Sepsis Trust as I was inspired by their passion to change the system and improve patient outcomes. My executive role focuses on raising awareness through good PR and engaging corporates and others who share our values and want to join our mission to save lives.
After the sudden death of my 41-year-old brother Mark, I realised the crucial importance of raising awareness about sepsis. I first joined the UK Sepsis Trust in 2013 as a non-medical trustee. My role has since developed to become the executive lead for Wales, responsible for helping deliver the important mission of the trust in Wales.
I’ve been with the UK Sepsis Trust since its inception and formed part of the team that developed the ‘Sepsis Six’. I specialise in sepsis systems, risk stratification and early treatment. I am a Consultant in Emergency Medicine, and an Honorary Professor of Prehospital Critical Care at the University of Plymouth.
I’m a nurse with a background in the care of the acutely ill. I was the first nurse in the UK to work as a sepsis Nurse Practitioner with a project funded by the National Institute for Healthcare Research and worked with Ron to develop the Sepsis Six.
I am the Executive Lead Nurse for Education and work closely with the Birmingham office team
