Urine samples – change in policy with effect from 1st September

With effect from 1st September 2021 we will no longer be accepting urine samples at reception unless they have been specifically requested by a healthcare professional (GP/ nurse/ midwife/ healthcare assistant).  This brings us in line with many other GP practices.

If you have a suspected UTI you will need to make an appointment with a GP (same day only appointments are released at 8am and 12 noon each day).  If there are no appointments available you can attend a Walk-in Centre, Urgent Treatment Centre, or call NHS 111.
