And now the news for the East Midlands, I'm Maurice Flynn.

:00:10.:00:13.

First tonight - one of the region's A departments has become the first

:00:14.:00:16.

in the NHS to have a dedicated team dealing with Sepsis cases.

:00:17.:00:21.

The blood-borne infection kills more people in the UK than breast,

:00:22.:00:24.

Following criticism from the Care Quality Commission

:00:25.:00:30.

in 2015 that Leicester wasn't dealing with sepsis patients

:00:31.:00:32.

quickly enough, it's now installed a specialist team.

:00:33.:00:34.

Our health correspondent Rob Sissons has more on this.

:00:35.:00:41.

In Leicester, they see typically between eight and 15 new cases

:00:42.:00:44.

Sepsis is where the body's immune system, fighting an infection,

:00:45.:00:49.

Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition.

:00:50.:00:54.

It can happen to anyone with an infection of any kind.

:00:55.:01:00.

Cases can be complicated, hard to spot.

:01:01.:01:02.

Sometimes the symptoms seem like flu.

:01:03.:01:08.

The causes, though, are simple enough.

:01:09.:01:10.

It can be a simple chest infection, a skin infection, gastroenteritis.

:01:11.:01:12.

Intravenous antibiotics are needed, and fast.

:01:13.:01:17.

The aim in A is to identify more cases sooner.

:01:18.:01:20.

That's where this new special team comes in in Leicester,

:01:21.:01:23.

with life-saving kit at their fingertips.

:01:24.:01:25.

In here is everything we need for the treatment

:01:26.:01:30.

So we have our antibiotics, we have our culture packs,

:01:31.:01:36.

we have our fluid and we have our blood bottles that we have if we

:01:37.:01:39.

It about spotting sepsis quickly, it's about getting the treatment

:01:40.:01:45.

of antibiotics, fluids, into patients within an hour

:01:46.:01:47.

and it is about ensuring those patients that are not doing so well,

:01:48.:01:50.

that they get expert care further on into the hospital.

:01:51.:02:00.

The programme has been developed from concern about sepsis management

:02:01.:02:03.

in the NHS as a whole. At the end of the team's first week

:02:04.:02:06.

in A, they seem more Some patients do get worse and do

require intensive care support. Somewhere between ten and 20%

:02:11.:02:15.
