My grandad has another UTI his gp have no appointments

This answer was rated:

My grandad has another UTI his gp have no appointments tomorrow can I get a prescription through here?
Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: Aspirin daily
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Allergic to trimethorprin . He self catheterises twice a day

I would suggest two options:

- Call the GP tomorrow morning and ask for an urgent appointment (same-day appointment slots open up every morning and they also have a duty of care to attend to urgent problems affecting their patients).

- Obtain Nitrofurantoin for on online pharmacy. With Superdrug you can usually collect it from a local branch within 24 hours (order it here).

Does this help?
