Urinary Tract Infections in Women

If you call the practice for advice about symptoms of a possible urinary tract infection, you may be directed to one of the local pharmacies (Lloyds or Rowlands in Cults or Peterculter Pharmacy) who are offering an assessment/treatment service for uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI's), in female patients only. You will be asked some very basic questions to establish that it is suitable for you to use this option. UTI's are not uncommon in women, are generally not serious, but are a significant nuisance, and usually respond well to appropriate treatment. In men, UTI's are much less common and are more likely to need consideration for further investigation.

Your Local Pharmacy

Your local pharmacists are well qualified to advise you on treatment for many minor ailments.

Patient Requests for Private Referral

If you choose to see a specialist privately (either self-funding or using private insurance) we would like you to be aware of the following.

Your GP will provide a referral letter with relevant clinical information about your medical problem and other information relating to medical history and medications. The letter will usually be sent to one of the Grampian private medical providers.

If you have private medical insurance, it is your responsibility as the patient to inform your insurance company about the referral and to check that they will cover the costs of the referral (including consultation/investigations/treatment/follow-up). The insurance company may want to know which specialist you are being referred to, please check with the insurer if this is required information.

The private specialist will be responsible for all investigations and treatments relevant to the episode of private care. It is not appropriate for a patient to be seen privately by a specialist and then have blood tests or other investigations relating to that episode of private care via the practice. Any ongoing provision of NHS prescriptions leading on from the private consultation will be at the discretion of your GP, and based on current local prescribing guidelines.
