Urinary Tract Infection/Cystitis

About UTIs

UTIs are one of the most common bacterial infections seen in female patients, with over 40 per cent of women likely to suffer from one in their lifetime.
Symptoms of a UTI include:

  • Burning or stinging sensation on passing urine
  • Needing to pass urine frequently or urgently
  • Cloudy urine
  • Passing excessive or large quantities of urine

Visiting Charlton Pharmacy

Cystitis is a common infection of the bladder that can be painful or irritating, and in some cases can become more serious if the infection spreads to the kidneys. We offer nitrofurantoin to treat cystitis for certain patients. This antibiotic is highly effective in treating bladder infections, and symptoms usually improve within 24 hours.

If you think you may need antibiotics then please make an appointment below or walk in to the pharmacy at your convenience

We can offer a private urine test for £50 which will give you conclusive evidence of whether you need antibiotics or not. Our prescribing pharmacist can offer you the correct treatment based on the results for the price of a private prescription. Please note we do not offer a on site location for taking the sample and results can take 24-48 hours to come back to you.

Get advice and treatment for Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) at your local Pharmacy.

A new service has been launched in Gloucestershire to offer patients easy access to advice and treatment for UTIs via the NHS.

The scheme, aimed at women aged 16-64, will enable local pharmacists to treat patients with UTIs without the need for a GP appointment or prescription, providing a more convenient option and faster access to treatment.

This NHS service is only available AFTER a referral from your GP or NHS 111. Feel free to contact us first if you need any support
