Understanding Sepsis

28 October

A health talk about sepsis, what it is and how to spot it has been organised by The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Understanding Sepsis is the final in the series of the health talks for 2019 and takes place on 25 November at 11am at The Village Hotel (opposite the Royal Bournemouth Hospital).

Stuart Richardson, Clinical Educator at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital will lead the talk, which is expected to be very popular.

He said: “Sepsis has been in the media a lot recently and for good reason. Sepsis can be extremely dangerous and awareness and early treatment is vital.

“It’s very unlikely that someone with sepsis will be able to diagnose themselves as they’d be too ill but those around them can look out for the signs and get the patient to medical help early.

“I’m hoping that those that come to the talk can be ‘sepsis spotters’ and help to identify the symptoms which can potentially save a life.”
