These resources aim to educate school children and encourage them to share their learning with friends and family, so we can all protect each other from sepsis.
Sepsis affects 25,000 children every year. In total, it affects more than 250,000 adults and children in the UK every year. It is a life-threatening condition in which the body’s response to an infection causes damage to tissues and organs, resulting in life-changing after-effects. However, with early diagnosis and treatment, people can make a full recovery.
Anthony Collins Solicitors are partnered with The UK Sepsis Trust and would love to spread the word about this amazing resource. We work with families who have been affected by sepsis, especially after a negligent delay in sepsis diagnosis and treatment. Sharing this resource and raising awareness is a key part of our work to support clients and improve patient safety.
The resources, developed in collaboration with the PSHE Association, include:
- A sepsis lesson plan and activities.
- Teacher resources.
- An introduction video by TV’s paediatrician and UK Sepsis Trust ambassador Dr Ranj Singh.
- An animated video – Sam’s Monkey (voiced by actor Warwick Davis), which explains what sepsis is and why it’s important to know the signs.
- Sepsis information cards for children to take home.
