ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study that analyzes the audit of H pylori testing at a university hospital. Aintree University Hospital has a catchment area of 300,000. The diagnosis and eradication of H pylori infection plays a major part in the management of gastroduodenal diseases with WHO identifying H pylori as a grade 1 carcinogen. The gastrointestinal physiology database was searched for 13C urea breath tests and the public health laboratory database for helicobacter serology requests over the same period. 94% of H pylori detection Aintree is histology/biopsy based with cost implications for the laboratory.
