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.
