Darren’s Sepsis Story

Darren was born with cerebral palsy and learning difficulties but did that stop him…. not at all. For 35 years he was the big brother, the perfect son and the best uncle.

Darren Chesterman’s Sepsis tragedy began in May 2017. Darren had been unwell during May and was admitted to A&E after having several TIAs (transient ischemic attacks or mini-strokes), after spending a few days on a stroke ward he was discharged.

However, Darren then started to experience dizzy spells, sickness and abdominal pains. A few days later he started vomiting intensively, but it didn’t stop, and by midday his Mother Gill phone her local GP to express her concerns. The GP visited shortly after the phone call and shared her concerns with Gill and phoned an ambulance for Darren to be taken to A&E at Walsall Manor Hospital. He was given treatment for a major infection and received a broad spectrum of antibiotics and intravenous fluids.

Darren was then diagnosed with a cerebellar infarction a subtype of the ischemic stroke and was moved to the stroke ward.  Unfortunately, severe Sepsis set in, and Darren suffered from multiple organ failure. He passed away on the 18th May at an age of 35. Darren is missed every day by his family, and his death has left a huge gap in their lives.

Darren was a valued customer to West Way Nissan and ‘he loved nothing better than to sit in the front with me [his Mum] and have Smooth radio on or one of his many CD’s’, and unfortunately, stories like this are far too common. There were 44,000 deaths because of Sepsis last year, each one as harrowing as all the others, and each one leaving a hole in their family’s lives. We need to raise awareness of Sepsis to stop unnecessary deaths and heartache for the families affected.

Sepsis spreads quickly but if diagnosed soon enough it can be treated. That’s why Gill is making it her mission to help raise awareness of Sepsis, so that more people know the dangers of Sepsis and how fast it spreads. Therefore, West Way Nissan are supporting Sepsis Trust and Gill in raising awareness so that more lives can be saved.

The Diesel Debate – Fact or Fiction?

You’ve heard all the news on Deadly Diesel. Sifted through all the facts, figures and opinions. And you probably still don’t know exactly what to believe with ever-growing confusion for the consumer about Diesel vehicles.

 It’s no secret, Diesel has a bad reputation right now. The Volkswagen Emissions Scandal, where the company fitted ‘cheat devices’ to its vehicles, so when driven under test conditions would pass the emissions test, but in reality, failed under real driving conditions, has caused a wave of unrest within the industry. Are Diesel vehicles really the dirty, polluting, planet destroying monsters the media are making them out to be?
