Role of AHSNs and Patient Safety Collaboratives highlighted in action plan for sepsis

The cross-system action plan for sepsis was published at the end of December by NHS England.

The report highlights the role of Academic Health Science Networks and Patient Safety Collaboratives in supporting work around sepsis across the country, and the West of England regional sepsis group got a specific mention.

Dr Mark Juniper, a member of the West of England Patient Safety Collaborative, said: “This is a really important report. If we all take action, fewer people will die from sepsis. All healthcare professionals need to be prepared to treat these patients. Improved recognition, assessment and treatment of sepsis will save lives. Reading this report and acting on its recommendations will help all of us to do this.”
