Identifying the disease

The ability to recognise meningitis and septicaemia quickly can save lives. The sooner you can get medical help, the less likely it is to become life threatening. That’s why learning the signs and symptoms is so important. Get advice today. They can be easily missed or mistaken for something else, like flu or a hangover. Remember, they can appear in any order, and some might not appear at all.

It’s important to know that not everyone will get a rash, so DO NOT WAIT. If another student is ill and getting worse fast, call for medical help immediately.
