13 / Jun

We understand how distressing and uncomfortable a urinary tract infection (UTI) can be, and we’re here to help you get back on track quickly and efficiently. Through the NHS Pharmacy First Scheme, we offer prompt and professional UTI treatment, saving you the hassle of waiting for a GP appointment.

What is a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)?

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common condition that affects the urinary system, including the bladder, kidneys, ureters, and urethra. UTIs are typically caused by bacteria and can lead to symptoms such as:

– Pain or burning sensation when urinating
– Frequent urge to urinate, even when little urine comes out
– Cloudy, dark, bloody, or strange-smelling urine
– Pain or pressure in the lower abdomen or back

If you are experiencing these symptoms, it’s crucial to seek treatment promptly to prevent the infection from spreading to your kidneys.
