National charity organisation the UK Sepsis Trust invited Salus to take part in Sepsis Unplugged – a two-day conference featuring practical workshops and sessions held on 5th-6th February. As Sepsis often includes chronic fatigue symptoms, Salus’s CEO Linda Jones was invited to speak to health professionals from around the country about the work of the Fatigue Foundation and her own personal story of moving from ill health to recovery.
Sepsis survivors have been found to have some of the same symptoms as M.E./CFS and similarly also often find themselves left isolated with little or no support or education for recovery.
Both from the talk and at the stall, the Salus team were able to engage with health practitioners who wanted information on how to go about giving practical support people with signs of chronic fatigue.
Salus is expanding the organisation’s scope to reach out to people with chronic fatigue related conditions and sharing the organisation’s expertise, advice, support & compassion.
