A WOMAN who lost her sister to sepsis will help lead training at Basildon Hospital.
Kay Dejan, 44, from Chafford Hundred, died of blood poisoning after routine surgery to a broken knee.
The tragic death of Kay has been well documented. In May 2011, Kay was taken to A&E at Basildon Hospital after a fall, had an operation the next day and returned home two days later with her leg in plaster.
Ten days later, her family rushed her back to the hospital after she began looking unwell.
Hours later, she died of sepsis.
Her sister Clare Jupp has campaigned tirelessly
Basildon hospital chief executive Clare Panniker has agreed that hospital would begin working closely alongside the UK Sepsis Trust.
Trust chairman Dr Ron Daniels is now set to visit Basildon Hospital to deliver a training package in November to doctors and nurses.
