Become involved by providing your comments on the early design of a new study

Deadline: Midday on 11 January 

Sepsis (also known as blood poisoning), is the immune system's overreaction to an infection or injury. Normally our immune system fights infection - but sometimes, for reasons we don't yet understand - it attacks our body's own organs and tissues. When present during pregnancy, sepsis has the potential to adversely affect both mother and baby. Four individuals who have been recently pregnant and affected by sepsis, or postnatal women affected by sepsis are required to comment, contribute and help develop a study design which is patient focused.
