The information is not available in the format requested.
The most helpful information available is from reference costs, which are the average unit cost to National Health Service trusts and foundation trusts of providing defined services in a given financial year to NHS patients. Reference costs are not collected against the primary classification systems used by hospitals to code diseases and procedures. Instead, reference costs for acute care are collected against a secondary classification system called Healthcare Resource Groups (HRGs), which are standard groupings of clinically similar treatments that consume common levels of healthcare resource.
There are several HRGs within reference costs which give the cost of kidney or urinary tract infections. None of them distinguish between different types of infections or between patient ages. The most recent average unit cost for each non-elective finished consultant episode classified against these HRGs in 2013-14 was £1,137. The total cost for all such episodes in 2013-14 was £458.3 million.
