Today is World Sepsis Day and to raise awareness of the condition, our Health, Dementia and Wellbeing Team have collaborated with our Keep Going Don’t Stop Group and The MacIntyre Checkers to produce an easy read document on sepsis.
Following a report from LeDeR which highlighted Sepsis as the sixth top cause of premature death for people with a learning disability, our teams began to work together to produce a detailed easy-read document explaining the definition of Sepsis and how to spot it.
Sepsis can occur when your immune system overreacts to an infection and starts to damage your body's own tissues and organs. It is a life-threatening condition.
