GREAT Western Hospital has urged people to be vigilant to the signs of sepsis, after health experts warned patients to go straight to hospital if they think they have the deadly condition.After GPs cautioned patients with colds and coughs to stay away from surgeries last week, a winter health warning has been issued to remind people to be aware of the signs of one of the UK’s biggest killers.Health experts have now told patients with suspected sepsis not to write off the symptoms as a bad cold or flu bug, but to go hospital immediately if they suspect they have the infection.
