JUST ASK “ COULD I T BE ” SEPSIS? IT’S A SIMPLE QUESTION, BUT IT COULD SAVE LIVES. Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition, triggered by infection. It’s hard to spot, but it kills 52,000 people a year in the UK. It can be easy to treat if caught early. The charity urgently needs funding to train the public and the healthcare community on how to spot sepsis more quickly.
