Please bring urine samples to the surgery before 13.00, this is to make sure that your treatment is not delayed should your sample need to be sent to the lab.
A urine test can be performed at the surgery to diagnose any urinary tract infections and allow us to act quickly in helping to provide the right medication.
Please come to Reception if you feel you may be suffering from a urinary tract infection.
Sample pots and a short form to complete can be collected from the surgery which we will hand over to the Health Care Assistants to test. If an infection is found they will contact you to collect a prescription.
On some occasions the sample may be sent to the lab for further testing.
You can find out more about urine tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS website.
