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.
