The HSE National Sepsis Programme carries out important work to support the implementation of the National Sepsis Clinical Guideline, by bringing a focus on sepsis awareness and the promotion of early recognition of sepsis.

As you are aware, the HSE National Sepsis Programme publishes a sepsis report every year and organises an annual “Sepsis Summit”, which brings together healthcare providers, patients and carers.

As the publication of the HSE National Sepsis Outcome report is a service matter your question has been referred to the HSE for direct reply.
