For blood to blood contact, ie needlestick, etc:

1 in 3 chance of Hep C

1 in 30 of Hep B

1 in 300 of HIV.

Not sure where I got these, but that's what I'd always believed.

What's all this about a risk allowance? How do I get mine?!?!?!

I heard that they pay a risk allowance of around 300 pounds a month in the Broadmoor forensic posts. :-?
