Urine samples are required if you think you might have a urine infection or if your doctor wants to check on the state of your kidneys, for example in diabetes care.
To provide a mid-stream urine please use a sample bottle from the surgery or a very thoroughly cleansed and rinsed other container.
Cleanse yourself down below with clear water only and dry. Let the first portion of urine run away and catch some of the middle section, if possible fill the bottle to the top of the label. Then close the bottle thoroughly and shake gently.
Make sure you put your full name, date of birth and the first line of your address on the bottle as well as the date you have supplied the sample.
Please deliver the sample to the surgery reception before 11.00am on the same day you pass it.
