Throughout October and November, Healthwatch received feedback from patients who had suffered with sepsis. Neither patient had been identified early enough, which delayed treatment. Early identification is key with SEPSIS to ensure full recovery.
Healthwatch have provided regular information about the signs and symptoms of SEPSIS via our social media, website and whilst out in the public.
Healthwatch hope that by raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of SEPSIS in adults and children, patients will know to ask the question “could it be sepsis?” and know what to do if they do identify the symptoms.
Healthwatch will continue to share information regularly on an ongoing basis.
