In view of the crisis that many are facing, the UK Sepsis Trust has made the positive and crucial decision to extend our services, beyond sepsis, to those who have been critically ill with CoViD-19 in hospital.
The welfare of our volunteers, supporters and staff, along with our ability to maintain our National Support Service, is of paramount importance and UKSTs top priority.
Attention is rightly on CoViD-19. As a result, weve been looking hard at what we can do to help. We feel its our duty to step up to the plate not only because patients who have recently survived sepsis are more vulnerable to its effects, but also because CoViD-19 can cause sepsis in some patients. Moreover, we believe our skills, in supporting people affected by sepsis, are directly transferable to those surviving CoViD-19.
Our charity and its aims remain very much operational. As you'll appreciate, in line with government advice, we wont be undertaking face to face contact but will do all we can to respond to people who need advice via other channels. Our dedicated Support Service Team will be increasing capacity to help those in greatest need at this difficult time.
Dr Ron Daniels CEO "But we cant do this alone. Without vital funds, were unable to carry out such life-changing, valuable work.
