The MultICath Trial

Welcome to the MultICath Trial 

Unfortunately, the Covid-19  pandemic  resulted in us having to temporarily delay opening of the Multicath Trial. Having made some changes to ensure the trial is as Covid-safe as possible, we are pleased to report that we are now planning to commence recruitment from January 2021. 

The MultICath Trial aims to find out whether using a mixture of re-usable catheters and single-use catheters is as safe and acceptable for intermittent catheterisation as using only single-use catheters.

The study is funded by the National Institute for Health Research and is led by Professor Mandy Fader from the University of Southampton in collaboration with Bristol Urological InstituteGlasgow Caledonian UniversityNewcastle UniversityWhittington Health NHS Trust and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

If you would like to talk to someone about any aspect of the trial, please email Margaret Macaulay at 

Thank you from the research team for your patience and ongoing support.
