TestCard UTI Test & Treat Service
An easy way to test & treat a urinary tract infection which could save you a trip to your GP.
What is the Testcard UTI Test & Treat Service?
Our UTI Test & Treat Service is available UK wide and allows you to test for a urinary tract infection (such as cystitis), and treat it, without necessarily needing to see your GP. You can use the test kit at a time and in a place to suit you, and, once you’ve completed the test, if you have a positive result you can order your prescription via the TestCard app, approved by our pharmacist and delivered to your door.
Who can use the Service?
This service is for women ages 16-64 who have symptoms of a UTI, such as burning pain when passing urine, cloudy urine, or needing to pass urine more often than usual. People who are pregnant can use the TestCard UTI test but cannot use the online prescription service – please contact your GP if you have a positive test result.
What is cystitis?
Cystitis, a type of urinary tract infection (UTI), is an inflammation of the bladder which is usually caused by a bacterial infection. It’s an extremely common condition in women, and although it can be really uncomfortable, it’s usually easy to treat.
- Burning or stinging feeling when passing urine
- Needing to pass urine suddenly or more often than usual
- Urine that’s cloudy
- Pain low down in your tummy
How it Works:
- Step one – Purchase a UTI test kit online at Amazon or from Dears in-store or online
- Step two – Download the TestCard App to your phone, then use the UTI test kit (All the instructions are in the app with a helpful video guide)

The pharmacist will evaluate your test results and prescribe treatment. MacroBid (a brand name for nitrofurantoin) is an antibiotic used to treat urinary tract infections. The treatment will be posted directly to you with next day delivery anywhere in the UK.
