NICE quality standards describe high-priority areas for quality improvement in a defined care or service area. Each standard consists of a prioritised set of specific, concise and measurable statements. They draw on existing guidance, which provides an underpinning, comprehensive set of recommendations, and are designed to support the measurement of improvement.
This quality standard covers the care of infants, children and young people under 16 years with a first or recurrent upper or lower urinary tract infection and without known underlying uropathy.
It was previously called urinary tract infection in infants, children and young people under 16.
