The Health Committee at the National Assembly for Wales want to hear from you to understand more about how sepsis is impacting people in Wales.

Why is the Committee looking into it?

Sepsis accounts for around 52,000 deaths per year in the UK alone, with over 2,500 of those estimated to be in Wales.

To put this in context, it kills more people than breast, bowel and prostate cancer combined per year in the UK.

Despite this, it is often referred to as one of the most common but least recognised illnesses in both the developed and developing world.

How can I take part?

If you live in Wales and you or a loved one has been affected by Sepsis, we want to hear from you.

1. Tell your story, your way through our storytelling tool and help us to learn from your experience.

2. Share your ideas for how to improve things for the future through our ideas tool.

What's the point?

Your voice is important and will inform recommendations made to Welsh Government on how to help prevent sepsis and better support those affected by this life-threatening condition.

**Closing date extended to 19.01.2020.**

Please note that this is a public, open forum . Anyone will be able to see contributions made in an open online forum, regardless of whether they have registered to the site or not.
