Annually, the UK sees on average 245,000 cases of sepsis, with a mortality rate of 20.3%, according to The UK Sepsis Trust. Additionally, in 2020 the World Health Organisation reported that , sepsis disproportionately affects vulnerable populations including newborns, pregnant women and people living in low-resource settings. Approximately 85.0% of sepsis cases and sepsis-related deaths occur in these settings. In order to ensure patients who develop sepsis do not escalate and in turn, reduce the number of sepsis-related deaths, NHS Trusts must strengthen staff training to raise awareness and ensure cases are identified early. Through sharing and engaging with best practice across the healthcare sector, trusts can reduce the sepsis infection rate and improve health outcomes for sepsis patients.

  • In 2020, it was reported around 48,000 people in the UK die from sepsis every year
  • Nearly 80,000 people each year suffer life-changing after-effects after recovering from sepsis
  • Sepsis kills more than breast, bowel and prostate cancer combined
  • Approximately 2000 children each year develop sepsis in the UK
