Early diagnosis

We work with the NHS and the public to improve access to meningitis information, promoting early diagnosis and swift action for better patient outcomes

Early diagnosis

Meningitis and septicaemia can kill in hours if left untreated and without vaccines to protect against all types, our awareness work remains a priority. 

As part of our work to improve early diagnosis, we: 

  • Educate health professionals in the NHS on early diagnosis to improve outcomes for patients.
  • Work with public health authorities to improve information sharing before and after cases.
  • Lead public campaigns on meningitis awareness. 
  • Deliver targeted campaigns to health visitors and children’s centres working with children under five.
