Urinary Tract Infection

Urinary Tract Infection Service

This service is for women aged 18+ and under 65 years and for the treatment of uncomplicated UTI.

Urinary-tract infections (UTIs) are common infections that can affect any part of the urinary tract (kidneys, ureter, bladder, or urethra). They occur more frequently in women and are predominantly caused by bacteria from the gastrointestinal tract entering the urinary tract.

There are different kinds of UTIs, depending on where in the urinary tract the infection is located. The infection can be in the lower part of the urinary tract (bladder and urethra), or the upper part (kidney and ureters).
Another common UTI is cystitis or infection of the bladder.
Symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI) may include:
If after completing a questionnaire and consultation, our pharmacist finds you suitable to receive antibiotics, you will be issued with six (6) modified release Nitrofurantoin 100mg capsules for a 3-day treatment course.
Nitrofurantoin is the first line first treatment of choice for uncomplicated UTIs as recommended by The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
