Hi,
This is Dr Gupta,
Just Answer is a Professional QnA website and we do not provide prescriptions, offline consultations or notes,
In UK, If your pharmacy has a pharmacist prescriber they can do this for you. otherwise, you will have to request your GP. Some of the online telemedicine providers like push doctor (https://www.pushdoctor.co.uk/) & Lloyd's pharmacy (https://onlinedoctor.lloydspharmacy.com/) & Gogodoc (https://gogodoc.com/) can issue a prescription and medical notes as well. You can also try "See a Doctor In Minutes" (thegpservice.co.uk) https://www.theonlineclinic.co.uk/ for an online prescription.
https://www.concilio.com/en/teleconsultation/ provides prescriptions that are valid across Europe,
I am just a user like you, and I would be glad to help out in any way that I can,
In case you are looking for a refund, kindly approach Just Answer Customer Service assistance.

For first aid treatment, the following is recommended for you:
-You can start with a pain medicine like Paracetamol or Ibuprofen for immediate pain relief.
-You can take an over-the-counter medication called AZO (urinary antiseptic/analgesic) This medicine will decrease your urgency and frequency by relaxing your bladder muscle spasm and will relieve the pain/burning during urination. It contains phenazopyridine that affects the lower part of your urinary tract & treats symptoms of UTI

-Drink either unsweetened blueberry juice or unsweetened cranberry juice. Try to drink at least 2 to 4 glasses of cranberry juice a day.
- Increase your fluid intake
-You can take D-Mannose tablets from your pharmacy.

All of this will help you greatly treat UTI/kidney infection.

You may need to visit your GP or A & E if the symptoms do not improve with these measures.

Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer. I hope I have given you a satisfactory answer. If you have any follow up questions, please reply here and I'll be happy to assist you.
Warm Regards,
Dr. Gupta, MD

And finally,

If you want to avoid the NHS & get an offline consultation, I would recommend getting an appointment at the closest Nuffield hospital, they are a highly rated private hospital chain in UK,
