Llusern was delighted to be asked to contribute to a report by ITV News reporter Stacey Foster on chronic UTIs.

Stacey’s report highlighted the problems with the process of diagnosing UTIs which, if left untreated or misdiagnosed can leave patients in recurring pain.

We can change the way people are diagnosed, reduce the incidences of chronic UTIs and reduce the antibiotic burden.
