Geoff’s story: one man’s encounter with sepsis

Early recognition and treatment of sepsis saves lives,  yet opportunities to intervene promptly are sometimes still missed with catastrophic consequences, as highlighted by the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman Report “Time to Act” (2013).

Geoff’s Story is a a short (eight-minute) film about one man’s encounter with sepsis. It is a powerful reminder of how delayed diagnosis may have life-threatening consequences, but also how prompt recognition and management of sepsis can and does make the difference between life and death.

We are extremely grateful to Geoff and his family for sharing their story. We hope you too will share it to make others aware and care about Sepsis.

Make a difference. Think Sepsis. Say Sepsis. Do the Sepsis Six.
