Urine Samples

Posted on January 20th, 2021

 

We will no longer be able to accept a urine sample unless it is in a urine sample bottle. Empty water bottles, medicine bottles etc will not be accepted. If you do not have a sample bottle at home please call at the surgery and we will be happy to provide you with one.”

The reasons why this is no longer acceptable is because:

1. The sample could be contaminated and therefore lead to over/under treatment of antibiotics.

2. For infection control purposes we should not be decanting urine from 1 item to another.
