Campylobacter: Estimating the healthcare cost of gastrointestinal infection in Scotland
1 documents for this subject
This report, produced by Health Protection Scotland (HPS) on behalf of FSS, assessed the direct healthcare costs associated with campylobacter infection in Scotland.
The study explored the cost differences across age and deprivation (SIMD) category to identify key population groups with the highest financial burden from campylobacter. It has identified the groups where reductions in the incidence of campylobacter would potentially have the greatest impact on the costs incurred by the health service.
This report, produced by Health Protection Scotland (HPS) on behalf of FSS, outlines the data linkage for laboratory confirmed campylobacter cases in Scotland during the 5-year period 2013-2017.
This study was commissioned to be undertaken by the University of Aberdeen to understand why there are differences in disease incidence between more and less deprived populations, and to obtain an up to date picture of campylobacter infection in Scotland.
