Our mission is simple. To stop sepsis now. And with your help we will stop sepsis.
How are we doing this?
- We work with medical professionals to raise awareness and recognition of sepsis across doctors, nurses and other frontline staff in all areas of the NHS. Up to 15,000 lives a year could be saved in the UK through prompt diagnosis and treatment
- We raise funds to support longer-term research. Research that helps improve how people are diagnosed. Research to improve treatment. Research to understand why some people respond better to treatment than others. Research into the quality of recovery and after-effects of sepsis
- We want to make sure there are accurate statistics about the number of people who have had sepsis, recognising that it is still under-diagnosed, often because of other pre-existing illnesses that people are suffering with. We need to know the full extent of the issue to increase awareness amongst the public, and funding from NHS Research into stopping sepsis.
- We offer support, guidance and advice to people whose lives have been impacted by sepsis
- We want to raise £1m per year by 2024/25
We don’t just want people to survive sepsis. We want to ensure the best quality of life for sepsis survivors. Our hope is that in future, no-one will have to suffer the loss of a loved one to this condition.
