Sepsis is a disease many have never heard of. Still, according to information provided by the UK Sepsis Trust charity, it kills five people in the UK every hour: that’s over 43,500 people annually. Sepsis is more common than heart attacks and causes more deaths than bowel, breast and pancreatic cancer taken together.
There are at least 245,000 sepsis cases every year in the UK. Of those who survive the condition, more than 26,500 suffer life-changing disabilities such as amputations and organ failure.
Sepsis is all the more dangerous because, despite its prevalence, few people know much about the illness, let alone recognise its symptoms. In addition, GPs often fail to diagnose it fast enough.
The NHS estimates that 10,000 deaths from Sepsis are wholly preventable and only happen because of failure by health professionals to detect and treat symptoms of the illness in its early stages.
