ICD costs

Mike was chatting to Anna, a St Jude Nurse, when the conversation turned to the costs involved with these pieces of equipment.

Here goes….. (approximate costs) of equipment only….

ICD = £10,000

CRT-d = £12,000

Leads = £1500 (each lead)

Merlin = £500

This doesn’t include the costs of doctors, nurses, porters, physiologists, radiographers etc, etc, etc. Thank goodness for the NHS

Private procedure = £7000
