If you have symptoms of a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) some community pharmacies now offer a UTI service for women aged 16 to 64.

After consenting to receive treatment, the pharmacist will ask you a series of questions and, if necessary, ask you to provide a urine sample (bottles will be available). The urine sample may be tested to check whether a UTI is likely to be present.

If the result of the test does not suggest you have a UTI, the pharmacist can offer advice on self-care as well as a range of over-the-counter treatments.

If your symptoms alone, or together with test results, indicate a UTI is likely, the pharmacist may provide you with antibiotics.

Please note, you may be referred to your GP or another healthcare professional if you are not eligible for the service.

Please contact your local community pharmacy prior to attending.
