Urinary Tract Infection

 

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common infections that can affect the bladder, the kidneys and the tubes connected to them.  They are the second most common clinical indication for routine antibiotics in both primary and secondary care and urine samples make up the largest single group of specimens examined in most medical microbiology laboratories.  The need for accurate prompt diagnosis and treatment is key in their successful management.  Resources below set out to provide information or training resources which can be used to inform practice.  Please also refer to the primary care antimicrobial prescribing guidelines for information on treatment of urinary tract infections.  Please revisit this page regularly as we are currently updating with new resources linked to a Worcestershire campaign to reduce the prevalence of urinary tract infections.
