We have a new ear syringing policy.If you feel your ears are blocked with wax and not painful you will be offered an ear assessment appointment with the Practice Nurse.They will check your ears and if they feel syringing is required will offer advice regarding softening agents to be used for 3 weeksThey will also discuss with you regarding the risks of this procedure and preventing the problem from recurring and advise if appropriate to then book for ear syringing.This policy is to reduce the amount of ear syringing that needs to be repeated due to inadequate preparation of the ears.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues.
