That this House notes that sepsis claims 37,000 lives in the UK and costs the NHS over £2 billion each year; recognises that health professionals have identified timely, cost-effective interventions labelled the Sepsis Six which can halve the risk of death and calls for these measures to be mandated; further recognises that NHS organisations should be held to account for progress against the indicators identified in domain 1 and domain 5 of the NHS Outcomes Framework; and further calls for sepsis to be included in a future edition of the Framework.
