Diagnosis of Urinary Tract Infections in Childhood and management of CA1099 v5.1
The Trust is adopting the NICE guidance ‘CG54 Urinary tract infection in children’ for the management of UTI in children at the Trust.
Some of the recommendations by NICE are difficult to follow in our hospital due to practical reasons. The ‘Additional Information’ section details the relevant Trust recommendations which override the applicable recommendation in NICE guidance CG54.
Please read the ‘Additional Information’ section before referring to the NICE guideline. The links to the NICE guideline CG54 are given on page 3.
Clinical GuidelinesThis guideline has been approved by the Trust's Clinical Guidelines Assessment Panel as an aid to the diagnosis and management of relevant patients and clinical circumstances. Not every patient or situation fits neatly into a standard guideline scenario and the guideline must be interpreted and applied in practice in the light of prevailing clinical circumstances, the diagnostic and treatment options available and the professional judgement, knowledge and expertise of relevant clinicians. It is advised that the rationale for any departure from relevant guidance should be documented in the patient's case notes.
The Trust's guidelines are made publicly available as part of the collective endeavour to continuously improve the quality of healthcare through sharing medical experience and knowledge. The Trust accepts no responsibility for any misunderstanding or misapplication of this document.
