If yiou want to use to use the document to take to your own GP please do so - we would also be interested in any feedback this action may result in.
I addition we are a founder member of the MUST group ( Make Urine Sampling Trustworthy) along with The Urology Foundation, CUTIC and Forte Medical. We will have more news on the actions of this group in the coming months but along with CUTIC we are actively pursuing the introduction of new NHS Guidelines that will radically affect the criteria for sampling and testing of Urine. The activity is also in line with the Public Health Englands infection prevention and control measures.
As a patient based organisation we have a strong voice and can represent the collective feelings of all of our supporters in the best possible way.
