Co-presenters: Dr Ron Daniels, Birmingham & Professor Mervyn Singer, London
Chaired by: Dr Sarah Logan, London
Ron Daniels is an NHS Consultant in Intensive Care, based in Birmingham, U.K. He’s also Executive Director of the UK Sepsis Trust and sits on the Executive Board of the Global Sepsis Alliance. In 2016 he was awarded the British Empire Medal for services to patients.
Ron’s expertise lies in translational medicine and leadership. He leads the team driving dissemination of the Sepsis 6 treatment pathway and is part of the team responsible for much of the policy and media engagement around sepsis in the U.K. and elsewhere, including the adoption of the 2017 Resolution on Sepsis by the WHO.
At home, Ron’s worked with the NHS over the last 5 years to ensure that, in England, more than 80% of patients presenting with suspected sepsis now receive appropriate antimicrobials rapidly. He’s ever mindful of the perceived conflict, and the synergies and need for collaboration, with the antimicrobial stewardship agenda.
Mervyn Singer is Professor of Intensive Care Medicine at University College London and current Chair of the International Sepsis Forum. He co-led the ‘Sepsis-3’ redefinitions task force (Singer et al. JAMA 2016) that moved the emphasis of sepsis away from the bug and more towards a dysregulated host response triggered by the infection. He has researched and published widely on sepsis, infection and antibiotic use (and abuse) in journals such as NEJM, Lancet and JAMA, covering a broad range of basic mechanistic, translational and clinical research. He also provides advice on clinical management of sepsis to various national and international bodies.
Trained in London.

Passionate about improving communication with primary care and treating patients in the way they choose, in the right place, with the right team, at the right time.
