Sepsis is one of the biggest killers of our time; everyone should be aware of the signs as early treatment is crucial to save lives.
People are being urged to not be "martyrs" if they start experiencing potentially deadly symptoms this winter. GPs have warned patients with coughs and colds to stay away from surgeries - with cases at a seasonal high. There are concerns a lack of education on how to spot warning signs of sepsis could lead to people staying away. An estimated 1,800 people in Wales die a year from sepsis, which can be mistaken for influenza early on.
