2024 Headline Sponsor:

Melissa Mead

National Project Coordinator, UK Sepsis Trust

Melissa’s passion for raising awareness of sepsis stems from personal tragedy after her one-year old son William succumbed to sepsis in December 2014. Sadly, William’s underlying pneumonia had been miss diagnosed as a viral infection and doctors failed to notice the signs of sepsis.

Rather than get angry, Melissa got active. Campaigning quite significantly over the last few years. With the UK Sepsis Trust, she has seen significant movements in the public’s knowledge of sepsis in addition to healthcare workers treating sepsis in a timelier fashion.

In 2018 Melissa was awarded an MBE for her work in raising awareness of sepsis.
