Having recently had Sepsis during a stay in North Yorkshire I can personally endorse this initiative 100%.
I was within 2hrs of dieing it appears and my life was saved through the actions of the Ambulance crew and the Staff at Scarborough Hospital.
I have also visitted Liverpool Childrens Hospital with my Granddaughter lately and would just like to like to thank them for the marvellous Care she received.
