GP expert calls for women to get antibiotics for cystitis without prescription

Comment

Are we all pretending here that recurrent UTI is something that we as GPs can get appropriate microbial diagnostic tests. As a GPwSI in this area I see many recurrent UTI patients who never get positive culture results, crippling GPs ability to manage appropriately. Urologists are not interested. These poor patients are left with life altering symptoms. Surely we need to address this "burning: issue first.
