Sepsis – NHS England’s Plan A failed!

Did you notice the rise in cases in Sepsis reported by the NHS? You may know that NHS England has an action plan

Bottom line;  the NHS England plan has not worked.   So I guess we need Plan B.

Here are three things that NHS England could do now:

  • Create a Sepsis Registry – we would then know the extent of the problem. NHS England currently doesn’t have a succinct policy for Registries (perhaps they could get round to that).
  • Adopt the international standards of Sepsis treatment. Making sure the poor primary care practices are called out and addressed. (although you need a Registry to do that).
  • Refer every Sepsis death to a Coroner to investigate.

That should cut the number of entirely avoidable deaths.
