The Lee Spark NF Foundation

Necrotising Fasciitis (NF) is a severe infection involving the soft tissues below the skin, particularly the fascia. NF may be caused by a number of bacteria, including Group A Streptococcus. Streptococcal necrotising fasciitis is a serious, devastating infection that if not recognised early the patient can pass away within three days, with approximately four to five thousand cases in the UK each year.

The Lee Spark NF (Necrotising Fasciitis) Foundation aims to:

  • offer information and support to survivors and bereaved relatives and friends
  • raise the profile and awareness of the condition amongst both professionals and the public

Please see our website for more information about the closely related conditions Toxic Shock MRSA and various streptococcal infections.
