ABSTRACT
This article estimates the true cost of a new gastroenterologist including salary, secretarial support, junior staff, and new clinics. However, new appointments can result in significant additional expenditure but assessment of this is hampered by lack of reliable information in the National Health Service. This study does not include the general medical emergency service or gastroenterology inpatients. All new patients were followed up and any investigations recorded. 563 new outpatients were seen and all but 17 had at least one investigation. 67 different tests were ordered ranging from a full blood count to MRI scan.
