People are being invited to a special screening of an educational video which tells the story of a family's struggle to overcome their life-changing experience with sepsis.

The film 'Starfish' (starring BAFTA winner Tom Riley and Golden Globe winner Joanne Froggatt) will be shown at Reed House, Broadland Business Park, in Norwich - the home of Integrated Care 24 (IC24).

IC24 provides out-of-hours GP and 111 services to residents of Norfolk and Wisbech.

Sepsis, or blood poisoning, is the UK's third-biggest killer, which claims at least 44,000 lives per year.

The purpose of the screening is to raise awareness of sepsis so that changes can be made across health organisations to boost outcomes and prevent the condition.
