We are reviewing how urine samples are managed in our practice. This is due to national guidance from NICE and our Royal College of General Practitioners. We as a practice are trying to reduce the burden of antibiotic resistance. As of the 1st of August we will no longer accept samples in reception for dipping of urine, for suspected urinary infection.
If you are concerned you have a urine infection you will need an appointment with a clinician. If you require any further information please ask for a telephone consultation with either Nurse Angie or Nurse Kate.
