  1. Hello, I'm sorry to hear your husband is unwell. This is understandably a very difficult time for you. It may be helpful to speak with the support nurses at The UK Sepsis Trust. We are all qualified nurses with vast amount of experience in Intensive Care looking after patients with sepsis and advising people in there recovery. We are available via our freephone support number, 0808 800 0029, Mon-Fri, 9-4. Or email support@sepsistrust.org Its important to reach out to those close to you at this time. To support you and your daughter. I would also advise you to get daily updates from the Intensive Care team. Communication is vital and if you have any questions, write them down. Brian is an example that many people do survive this so hope is important. It is also not uncommon for sepsis to affect the kidneys so they require support in the form of dialysis. Please don't hesitate to get in touch. Wishing you and your husband well, Oliver Jones - Support Nurse UK Sepsis Trust

  3. Hello Eddie My name is Oliver and I'm one of the support nurses at the UK Sepsis Trust. I'm sorry to hear you are suffering some of the after effects of Sepsis. We speak to people frequently who are discharged from hospital with little or no information about Sepsis and some of the common after effects. Unfortunately it also appears some healthcare professionals knowledge of the post Sepsis period is limited. This is mainly due to a lack of awareness and understanding and there being little research into the long term affects of Sepsis. Some hospital trusts will offer follow up services after discharge from Critical Care but this is not mandatory and seems to be focusing on the post Critical Care group of patients. To our knowledge there is no NICE guidence on post Sepsis follow up at present, however the UK Sepsis Trust are keen to identify current practice with a view to developing some robust guidance. Please feel free to call our freephone support number, 0808 800 0029, and we can discuss this further. Kind regards, Oliver.
