Jeremy Hunt has announced new measures to help combat sepsis

Jeremy Hunt has announced new measures to help combat sepsis.

"Thousands of nurses, care home staff and pharmacists will be told how to check for signs and symptoms of sepsis, as part of a new NHS plan to improve treatment of the condition.

Known as a silent killer because it is difficult to spot, sepsis kills around 37,000 people in England every year. Triggered by an infection, sepsis causes the body’s immune system to go into overdrive, setting off a series of reactions that can lead to organ failure and, in some cases, death."
