The MultICath Trial


We will be recruiting trial participants through GP practices and both primary care and secondary care services and would appreciate your help with recruitment to this important study for intermittent catheter users.

Primary Care

In primary care we will recruit mainly through General Practices , using prescribing records to identify potential participants, and asking the practices to contact them with information about the Trial. If you are a GP and may be interested in taking part, you can find more information using the link below.

Secondary Care

In secondary care we will be recruiting patients through urology, uro-gynaecology, spinal cord injury, neuro-rehabilitation and continence services based at secondary care institutions with which our Principal Investigators already have strong relationships.

In these units and services, the use of intermittent catheterisation is common among out-patient groups. More information about recruitment in secondary care can be found using the link below.

In addition, the Trial will be publicised through patient organisations and intermittent catheterisation users who are interested in taking part will be able to contact the study team directly.

Recruitment in primary care

Our primary route for recruitment is through General Practices as Participant Identification Centres (PIC), using prescribing records to identify potential participants.

Recruitment in secondary care

Our primary route to recruitment is through General Practices. However, we are also recruiting patients through secondary care services where patients commonly use intermittent catheterisation.
