Ear Syringing – For the time being Ear Syringing will no longer be performed at this Practice. Although the risks are low and our Healthcare Assistants are specially trained to perform this procedure, there is still a small chance of complications occurring - such as a perforated ear drum, middle ear infection, external canal infection or causing ringing in the ear (tinnitus).

 

If you do have stubborn ear wax then you may be suitable for a referral to ENT.  (Please be aware that there may be a significant wait for an appointment).
