New government sepsis awareness campaign launches

19th December 2016

A new nationwide campaign is being launched by the government to raise awareness of the symptoms of sepsis to protect the health of young children.

Organised by the Department of Health and Public Health England, the campaign is principally aimed at parents and carers of young children up to the age of four, with leaflets and posters being sent to GP surgeries and hospitals across the country.

These materials were developed with expert input and will urge parents to call 999 or seek emergency care if they recognise specified signs of sepsis in their children.

Telltale symptoms include looking mottled, bluish or pale, being lethargic or difficult to wake, feeling abnormally cold to touch, fast breathing, unexplained rashes and fits or convulsions.

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt said: "Sepsis is a devastating condition that we need to far get better at spotting across the NHS. By raising awareness and improving clinical practice, we will save lives in the fight against this horrible illness."

The UK Sepsis Trust estimates there are more than 120,000 cases of sepsis and around 37,000 deaths each year in England.
