The clothes were fun but the aim was serious – Medical Accident Group staff donned orange on Friday to mark #Orange4Sepsis Day, raising awareness of the medical condition which kills 44,000 people a year in the UK.
The firm has links with the Sepsis Trust, which aims to highlight the problem, support those affected by it and improve care.
Inez Brown, partner with Medical Accident Group, said: “Sepsis is life threatening and we want to play our part in helping to tackle it. If we can make more people aware of it, we know we can make a difference.” Sepsis, also known as septicaemia, occurs when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs, leading to multiple organ failure and death if not recognised and treated promptly.
