It's clear from the information in The Australian that the uncomplicated UTI pilot delivers for women and is a
major advancement for women’s health.
From its inception to its extension, the UTI Pilot has always been about providing high-quality health services to
women across Queensland and from everything we’ve read today, it’s achieved that.
Not every community has access to GPs—and even those that do, sometimes women have to wait weeks before
getting an appointment. This scenario forces women with a UTI to go to an overcrowded emergency department
or suffer in pain.
The uncomplicated UTI pilot in Community Pharmacy made treatment available to women in a timely fashion, in
line with the Australian Therapeutic guidelines, the same guidelines followed by doctors.
