Due to a shortage of flu vaccine supplies we are unable to invite all patients who are eligible in the 50-64 age group category and therefore we have prioritised patients in that age group with health conditions.  If you are in this age group and do wish to have a flu vaccine and have not heard from us, local pharmacies are providing these free of charge.  If we do obtain further vaccines for this age group, we will contact you.

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

A new service has been launched in the North East and Cumbria to offer patients easy access to advice and treatment for UTIs.

The six-month pilot 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.

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 a Pharmacy

There is a growing list of participating pharmacies across the North East and Cumbria.

No appointment is needed, and you can check which Pharmacists near you are taking part on the Pharmacy Services North East website.
