Sepsis clinical pathways
These clinical pathways aim to support emergency departments and urgent care centres to recognise and manage patients presenting with sepsis.
The pathways include recognition criteria, treatment guidance focused on the six key actions of managing sepsis and an empiric antibiotic guide.
