NICE guidance for recurrent UTI (NG112)

Author: Shannen Stevens
Category: Clinical guidelines, Conditions, NICE Guidelines
Date: February 8, 2019

This NICE guideline was published in October 2018 and although it is not aimed at palliative care patients it is worth noting that the use of nitrofurantoin MR 100mg BD is now regarded as preferable to trimethoprim as first line treatment. Trimethoprim resistance is more likely when used in the previous three months and in older populations.

The full guideline can be found on the NICE website.
