Please leave specimens at reception before 12 noon with a completed form or slip given from reception. You must include detail of symptoms to allow us to treat accordingly. Please note if you are female aged between 16 and 65years and have symptoms of a Urinary tract infection you can go to your local pharmacy where they can now treat this with antibiotics. There is no need to make a GP appointment for these symptoms, simply leave in a urine sample and the nurse will dip the sample, send it off to the lab if necessary and can issue antibiotics for you to collect.
