Article: 52/0502

On 5 February 2018, the Scottish Health Minister launched a Scotland-wide campaign to raise public awareness of the signs and symptoms of sepsis. The radio, print and social media campaign will reach people across the country, and every community pharmacy in Scotland will display posters warning of the signs of sepsis. It is being delivered in partnership with sepsis awareness and support charities FEAT, Scotland’s Sepsis Charity and Finding Your Feet. Specific materials will be displayed in GP surgeries and hospitals to complement work being done through the Scottish Patient Safety Programme to also raise awareness among healthcare teams.

More information on the symptoms of sepsis is also provided by NHS Inform.
