Corrie sepsis storyline saves baby's life


Coronation Street's sepsis story has helped to save a baby's life.

Aoife Duffy told Belfast Live that she discovered that her four-month-old was in serious discomfort, she made a GP appointment – but after remembering the Jack Webster storyline in Corrie where he is diagnosed with sepsis, she decided to rush her baby to an emergency department instead.

"We made a GP appointment, but I Googled her symptoms and remembered on Coronation Street when the symptoms weren't picked up by the GP several times, so I didn't want to take any chances. They saw us straight away and took a sample of her urine which showed signs of infection. Quite early on the doctor could see that sepsis was developing. They feared meningitis and had to test for it."

Her daughter was eventually diagnosed with sepsis, but the doctor soon got everything under control. Aoife's daughter is now in good health.
