Urinary Tract Infections

Diagnosis and treatment of most UTI's do not require a face-to-face appointment with a doctor.

If you suspect you may have a urinary tract infection then if you drop a urine sample at reception, with a description of symptoms and a contact number (there are dedicated forms at reception and we can also supply sterile sample containers at request) before 11am your sample will be dipsticked and treatment will be prescribed if this is suspicious of infection. If the dipstick is equivocal then the sample will probably be sent to the laboratory for testing.

Where possible please supply a midstream specimen to reduce the risk of sample contamination. More information on how to take a midstream sample can be found here.
