How is a UTI treated with our UTI Treatment?

Non-pregnant women 16 to 64 years of age with symptoms of uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI) are eligible for free advice and if clinically appropriate, a treatment through the Pharmacy first service without the need for seeing your GP. Your symptoms will be assessed by the pharmacist during a consultation.
 
The pharmacist will check your suitability and eligibility for the Free NHS Pharmacy First Service. In some cases, an antibiotic may not be required for your symptoms. 
If you are issued a prescription medicine, you will pay the standard NHS prescription charge unless you’re eligible for free prescriptions.
If the pharmacist is unable to offer treatment through this service, they will recommend an alternative or sign-post you to another service
