Earwax Removal

Earwax removal is not a service offered at the surgery.

Earwax normally just falls out on its own. When it's blocking your ears, a pharmacist can help. Please visit the NHS website below for more information about earwax treatment.

You can put OTEX or SODIUM BICARBONATE drops in your ear for few days, usually around 10 days, as this should dislodge the wax.

If it doesn’t clear, please make an appointment with our Assistant Practitioner who will check your ear. If the wax has not clear we will be able to refer you to the local hospital for earwax removal if appropriate but beware that there is a four months waiting list. Alternatively you may wish to attend a private clinic. If the wax has been dislodged but you still cannot hear, you may be referred to the Hearing Aid Clinic.

If you are experiencing pain, or notice a discharge please make an appointment with one of the Practice Doctors.
