Acute Sepsis Network


In A Nutshell:

We host an informal network for colleagues across Y&H supporting safe care for people with Sepsis.

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs.’ Merinoff

However this is a complex condition and the definition of sepsis has changed over time, and will continue to do so.

The network was created following a sepsis roundtable event back on 2015. We have continued to have informal meetings where we discuss issues, share experiences and good ideas. In between meetings we have an e-mail group to post questions and to share documents. Our area of focus continues to be education and the sharing of materials and skills where needed, and working together on key barriers to success.

Our network aims to:

To accelerate improvements to sepsis care in through:

  • Sharing and problem solving therefore reducing time and duplication of effort
  • Learn what works and what doesn’t
  • Learn from best in region and nationally
