The trial and treatment protocols for pharmacy prescribing in NSW are now public, two-and-a-half weeks after 1000 pharmacies started offering UTI diagnosis and treatment.

The trial’s primary outcome is self-reported symptom resolution after seven days, with the researchers contacting patients by text message, email or phone.
