Summary of Antimicrobial Prescribing Guidance and PHE Diagnostics Tools

NICE and Public Health England (PHE) have brought together information on managing common infections into a summary table. Information on key points, medicine, doses, length and a visual summary for Urinary Tract Infections are available on the NICE Website.

PHE have also produced quick reference tools for primary care on diagnosing and understanding culture results for urinary tract infection (UTI).

These tools are freely available through your medicines management teams and are also available to download on the Government Website.

This diagnostic tool describes when to:

  • send urine for culture in adults and children
  • consider a UTI in infants and children
  • consider a UTI in women under 65 years
  • consider a UTI in men and women over 65 years
