Registered Charity No: 1146234 (England & Wales).
Sepsis is a medical emergency claiming 37,000 lives each year in the UK: more than breast cancer, bowel cancer and prostate cancer combined. Experience has shown that if patients with sepsis are treated early, their chances of survival increase significantly.
65,000 people survive sepsis each year in the UK, many with long term physical and psychological problems, but they currently have very little access to rehabilitation or support.
We aim to save 12,500 lives each year in the UK, and to provide survivors and families with much needed support through educating health professionals and the public about sepsis symptoms and signs; addressing the physical and mental health of survivors and families by providing national support networks and rehabilitation services; and working with relevant healthcare organisations, professional bodies and the government, to ensure that sepsis is a clinical priority and to transform the way in which it is dealt with by healthcare professionals.
Your support of the vital work that we do will ensure that fewer families in the UK will have to go through the heartbreak of losing a loved one, as well as helping us to ensure that those who have survived sepsis, and the bereaved, are provided with the support that they so desperately need.
Remembering us in your will ensures that we can continue to make a difference to the lives of thousands of people in the UK for generations to come. Thank you so much.
