Urine tests

If you feel that you may have a Urine Tract Infection please can you ensure that you call and book an appointment with a clinician before bringing in a sample.

If requested please bring urine samples to the surgery 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.

We will accept any requests from the Hospital or Midwife.

Sample pots are available for you to collect from the surgery.

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.
