Sepsis: 'I lost my arms and legs - now stop it happening to others'
It all started with a prick to the gum at the dentist, but it soon developed into a living nightmare. Back in 1999, a then 38-year-old Tom Ray contracted an infection which doctors were slow to diagnosis as sepsis. This tragically led to the amputation of both of Tom’s legs, arms and the lower part of his face - but could all of this have been avoided?
Tom is now calling for mandatory sepsis checks for all NHS staff, and joins us today alongside his wife Nic, in the hope of saving countless lives.
