Urinary Tract Infections
Suspected Urinary Tract Infection
In line with CCG guidelines, the practice has adopted a protocol and self-care programme for patients with a suspected urinary tract infection. Most UTI’s can be treated at home.
Possible signs or symptoms of a UTI can include:
- Pain on Urination
- Lower back or side pain
- The need to urinate more often
- Blood in the urine
- An urge to urinate
- NEW incontinence
- A recent urine infection
If you feel you have two or more signs or symptoms of a UTI, please visit our Consulting Room and submit a Get help from the Practice form.
If a urine sample is necessary to determine treatment, patients will be required to take a mid stream urine sample themselves to be tested. Information on how to do this will be provided by the admin team.
