Rapid diagnosis of urinary tract infection in primary healthcare
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.
A new device is currently in the process of being developed to identify urinary tract infection related bacteria and inflammation within five minutes at GP practises.
We will assess the cost-effectiveness of alternative management strategies for urinary tract infections as part of this research programme.
