UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)

Symptoms of a UTI are: pain during urination, frequent urination, lower abdominal pain or back pain. If you think you might have a UTI, you don’t have to make an appointment with the GP immediately. Please bring in your morning urine so the assistant can examine it for an infection. After analysis we will call you and when necessary give a prescription, that will be send to your pharmacy directly. When you bring in urine you will be asked to fill in a questionnaire. You can also download the questionnaire (see link below), fill it in and take it in with your urine.
