Local NHS supports World Sepsis Awareness Day

Every year there are 150,000 cases of sepsis, resulting in 44,000 deaths which are more than deaths from bowel, prostate and breast cancer combined. You’re also five times more likely to suffer from sepsis than a heart attack or stroke. Anyone is at risk of getting sepsis, but young children aged 0-4 are particularly at risk.

Local NHS supports World Suicide Prevention Day

Within the county of Essex there is one death by suicide nearly every two days which is why NHS Southend and NHS Castle Point and Rochford Clinical Commissioning Groups are supporting World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) an annual event occurring on the 10th September.
