Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
If you think that you may have a UTI, please do not come to the front desk with a urine sample without prior discussion. Please call the practice first.
One of the receptionists will ask you a series of questions to determine if the suspected infection can be dealt with by a local pharmacy. If this is the case, you will be directed towards them.
If you require further discussion with one of the medical team a message will be generated and one of the duty team will contact you back on the same day for further discussion and advice.
Treatment of Urinary Tract Infections
Females over the age of 16
The Practice has rolled out new guidelines for the treatment of Urinary tract infections (UTI).
Reception staff will ask a series of questions that should triage you into the appropriate pathway. Depending on the answers, this may mean you are directed to a local pharmacy for treatment. Please read the outcome downwards:
|Is this your first UTI in the last 6 months||Yes||No|
|Is there blood in your urine?||No||Yes|
|Are you between the age of 16 and 65?||Yes||No|
