Mum tried to save daughter after sepsis collapse at home

Sepsis, which is linked to 1,500 deaths every year in Wales, is not always being treated in the same way in hospitals, new research claims.

A snapshot of 290 hospital patients showing signs of sepsis found only 12% were initially screened and treated in line with best practice.

The issue is the focus for BBC Wales' Week In Week Out programme, following Welsh weatherman Derek Brockway as he explores how his own father Cliff died of sepsis last year.

Michelle Christopher told him how her 17-year-old daughter Chloe died on 30 December 2014 after collapsing at home.
