Who do I see?
Do you think you have a urine infection?
Important selfcare treatment includes increasing your fluid intake and regular pain relief, Paracetamol is recommended.
Further information on urinary tract infections can be found at; https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/urinary-tract-infections-utis/
If selfcare treatment does not help and your symptoms persist;
Please make contact via AccuRx or phone and give detail of all your symptoms. – please detail if you have any pain (describe intensity and location) or fever. Your symptoms are important as they guide treatment.
In some situations, we might request a urine sample. If so please see the attached link for guidance on collecting a clean sample – Urine Tests.
If we have asked for a sample to send for culture (to the lab) please ask for a red top bottle from our reception team, this is important as it contains a preservative to ensure we have a good sample.
