Government calls on women to spill the beans on female health issues.

Forte Medical is routinely contacted by women whose UTI issues are left untreated or ignored by their GP. They describe being prescribed broad spectrum antibiotics that don’t work, followed by repeat prescriptions given without a specimen culture to identify the problem. Shockingly many are told the problem is “in your head” … the time has come to speak out. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-launches-call-for-evidence-to-improve-health-and-wellbeing-of-women-in-england

Breathing life into science: Peezy Midstream

Specialist lifescience recruitment business Austin Vita invited Giovanna Forte, Forte Medical CEO to deliver the first episode of its new “Breathing life into science” mini-series.

One routine day in Surgery, NHS GP Dr Vincent Forte had a Urethra Moment – and inadvertently alighted on the biggest problem that healthcare providers don’t know they have. Urine specimen contamination is the most common cause of untreated Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) which can wreck women’s lives and impact antenatal screening and prescribing.  It also means that millions of £ and $ are literally flushed down the loo due to contaminated and false positive samples being processed unnecessarily – and then retested.

Led by his sister Giovanna Forte, CEO of Forte Medical, Vincent’s invention Peezy Midstream is now growing in adoption in the UK and USA healthcare systems.
