Our mission is to stop sepsis now. We are dedicated to funding research to better understand sepsis, so that new treatments can be developed in the fight against it.
How are we doing this?
- We raise funds to support long-term research. This research aims to understand why some people more susceptible to infection and why some people respond better to treatment than others, in the hope that new and more effective treatments can be developed.
- 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. It is estimated that up to 15,000 lives a year could be saved in the UK through prompt diagnosis and treatment.
- 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 have. We need to know the full extent of the issue to increase awareness amongst the public, and push for more funding into research.
Our hope is that in future, no-one will have to suffer the loss of a loved one to sepsis.
