Re: Suspected sepsis: summary of NICE guidance

Many thanks to Dr Smith for pointing out the errors in the infographic. This visual summary was a complex undertaking, and it seems that the original files from which we were working contained some errors, which went undetected in the infographic.

We have worked with the guidance authors at NICE to re-check the entire graphic, and have also taken this opportunity to update some criteria that have changed since the original publication of the guidance.
