Sepsis Research FEAT

Sepsis Research FEAT’s Christmas campaign features supporters from across the country who are sharing their sepsis stories so that more people become aware of the symptoms and why it is vital to seek urgent medical attention if you spot them. The charity is also inviting others who have experienced sepsis to get involved by sharing their own stories online.


The RSPCA is asking people to join its Christmas rescue and help the charity protect animals at risk of abandonment this festive season.
