Recurrent UTIs in non-pregnant women

In this episode of the Primary Care Knowledge Boost Podcast Doctors Lisa and Sara talk with Ian Pearce, Consultant Urologist at Manchester Royal Infirmary, about recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) in non-pregnant women.

They discuss what UTIs are, and what makes them recurrent vs relapsing. They also chat through how to assess someone with recurrent UTIs and highlight some of the risk factors, before talking about the red flags for more sinister causes.

The management options for recurrent UTIs are also covered, from conservative options to medications, including a detailed dive into antibiotic prophylaxis. They also get Ian’s opinions on who to refer to urology.
