Urinary tract infection resource suite

TARGET logo, showing some pills and the words TARGET, keep antibiotics working

This section of the TARGET Toolkit has been designed to support the Government’s ambition to halve inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics to help facilitate the NHS Quality Premium targets related to reducing gram-negative bloodstream infections (GNBSIs) and inappropriate antibiotic prescribing in at risk groups.

We have grouped all of the TARGET resources focussing on Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) in one place to make it easier for you to find them all.

Version 1.0, November 2021.

Treating your infection - URINARY TRACT INFECTION (TYI-UTI) leaflet for women under 65 years

Treating Your Infection UTI leaflet FOR OLDER ADULTS and those who care for them

The leaflet can be used either to provide information on UTIs to those at risk or care staff may wish to share this leaflet with older adults in their care and/or their relatives. The leaflet may also be used during primary care consultations to facilitate dialogue between a patient and their healthcare professional on specific topics like treatment or safety netting. We would recommend that the leaflet is used as a tool to interact with patients, rather than as a ‘parting gift’.
