New sepsis support group established

Sepsis support group 10 Sep meetingThe new Oxfordshire and Berkshire Sepsis Support Group holds its first meeting on Monday 10 September 2018. This group has been formed as a direct result of the “Sepsis – a regional patient-centred learning event” run by the Oxford Patient Safety Collaborative in May 2018 and the input of Larry Whybrow-Gardiner – sepsis survivor – and Oliver Jones – Support Nurse, UK Sepsis Trust.

People can be affected by sepsis in many ways. You or someone close to you may have survived sepsis or you may have lost someone due to sepsis. Survivors can experience physical, psychological or emotional problems, some of which may not appear to be due to sepsis.

Support groups offer relaxed informal peer support meetings and a great way to share experiences with others who understand your feelings. If you have been affected by sepsis in any way, we would love to see you there. Family members and carers also welcome.

When and where: Monday 10 September 2018, 6.30pm – 8.30pm – Meadow Brook, 59 Stowford Road, Barton, Headington, Oxford OX3 9PP.

Travel and parking: There is free on-street parking including disabled bays and direct public access via the number 8 bus.

Further information: Call 0800 389 6255 or email
