Infection control (IC) services in the United Kingdom are provided as part of the microbiology services and therefore they have not, to date, been costed separately.
This paper addresses the cost of providing the service, the savings that accrue from the IC policies in a hospital and, finally, the cost of infective episodes and outbreaks.
The point of the exercise is to enable readers to cost their own services and separate the IC and microbiology budgets while maintaining the provision of service under one department.
