Urine infection

If you can book into our Minor Illness Clinics with an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, please do. Alternatively book in with a GP but please remember to bring in a urine sample or ask for a sample bottle at reception so we can send your sample off for analysis. If you bring in a urine sample, you may be able to have a telephone consultation instead as the urine will need to be analysed for infection. The samples box is in the waiting room and the nurses “dip” the urine to see if there any markers of infection. If there are, the sample gets sent off for further analysis at the pathology lab, if there are no markers, then the urine is clear and another cause is likely for your symptoms.
