MRSA in the UK

The bare facts are frightening: In June 2000 the National Audit Office said that there were at least 100,000 Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI's) a year costing the taxpayer about £1 billion pounds per annum. Each year since then the rate of infections has actually increased.

About 1 in 10 in-patients can expect to be infected. If you are lucky, this will result in nothing more that some discomfort and an extended stay in hospital. If you are not so lucky it could end in disability and even death. About 5000 deaths a year to be precise. Many commentators and observers believe the true figure to be closer to 20,000.

There is a huge effort underway and you can find out what is happening in the UK by following the links below:
