NHS Long Term Plan to reduce toll of ‘hidden killer’ sepsis
11 March 2019 – NHS England
Hospitals could face financial penalties if they fail to meet new guidelines for detecting and treating sepsis.
New guidance, mandated by NHS England, now includes a requirement for staff to alert senior doctors if patients suspected of having the deadly condition do not respond to treatment within one hour.
All NHS trusts in England will be contractually obliged to fully comply with the advice from April, in an effort to improve accountability.
