Do you have a suspected UTI? Take part in research

Posted on:

Our practice is running some research studies aiming to improve the care of women with UTIs. If you think you have a UTI please contact us first before going to a pharmacy for your symptoms, so we can give you the opportunity to be involved in these studies.

We’re working with Oxford University to evaluate new rapid tests for diagnosing urinary tract infections (UTIs) in general practice. If you are female, aged 18 years or above, and have had symptoms of a suspected urinary tract infection for less than seven days, you are eligible to take part to help to improve the speed and accuracy of UTI tests.

Participants will be asked to visit the practice and provide a single urine sample to be analysed before visiting the pharmacy for treatment.

Please contact our friendly research team to express your interest in taking part in this study on 01539 718867 (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday).

Find out about research at Lancaster Medical Practice.

Did you know that some pharmacies can now treat UTIs in women aged between 16 and 64? More information about Pharmacy First can be found here.
