Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common and unpleasant problem affecting thousands of people. It leads to painful symptoms and time off work, and sometimes significant complications, such as kidney damage.

We will assess the cost-effectiveness of alternative management strategies for urinary tract infections as part of this research programme.
